Study the most pressing issues facing the world today – from the climate crisis and extinction, to 21st century cities.

On this course, you can become an authority on the issues you care about most – and that matter to the world around you. You’ll gain a grounding in both physical and human geography – and you can specialise, if you want.

You’ll have the flexibility to follow your interests. You could study progressive conversation approaches, like rewilding. You could investigate desertification and resource scarcity. Or you could analyse urban protest movements, like Extinction Rebellion.

Your learning will centre on the areas:

  • Environmental issues, society and sustainability
  • Fieldwork
  • Geographical research skills

You’ll learn directly from expert researchers – and you’ll be closely supported all the way through.

You’ll also carry out fieldwork – both in the UK and abroad. You’ll build hands-on skills, and you’ll investigate important issues – from coastal erosion to cultural tourism.
