The course combines study of the fundamentals of both subjects with the opportunity to focus on individual areas of interest through specialist option modules. Students will also develop their employability and personal self-awareness.
An integral part of the programme is the opportunity to undertake a work placement, and in the final year of study, students have the opportunity to complete an interdisciplinary dissertation. Geographical fieldwork is undertaken locally in the first year, and on a residential trip (typically overseas) in the second year of the programme.
Graduates of this course will have a broad and interdisciplinary education, equipping them for a wide range of careers, combining knowledge of the practices of business and management, with geographical understanding of contemporary world issues such as environmental change, globalisation, urbanisation, and sustainability.
