Birkbeck, University of London

Course Introduction

We offer multiple approaches to the study of societies and cultures, human geography, and sustainability, poverty and development, as well as community and citizenship, at local, regional and global levels. Our Department of Geography, Environment and Development Studies thrives on the breadth of research interests of our staff. This means that we offer a wide range of undergraduate courses in geography, as well as allowing students to engage with other disciplines such as anthropology and international development. Birkbeck's mode of teaching is unique: it is almost all in the evening or at weekends, including fieldwork, so you can also gain relevant work experience during the day. Birkbeck's professional recruitment service, Birkbeck Talent, can help you secure paid interning and work opportunities to give you the edge in a competitive job market. You will be surrounded by committed fellow students from all cultures, backgrounds and career stages, who share their experience and expertise with their peers. Many of our students work in areas under discussion and so can bring their experience to bear in discussions about theory and practice. We are proud of our vibrant research culture, powered by a shared passion for learning and intellectual engagement among our academics and students. We have a strong commitment to social justice, which is demonstrated in much of our research. This is complemented by an extensive student support system and excellent research resources. Birkbeck is different: classes are in the evening, so you can work, volunteer or do your own thing during the day. Record numbers of students are doing just that and getting a head start on their future careers.
