Human Geography with a Year Abroad

Course Introduction

Explore the cultures, economies and societies that make up our world, past and present.

Our Human Geography BA is a chance to study in-depth how humans interact with and are affected by their environments, including:

cities past, present and future

culture and identity

economy and society

gender and power

geographies of biomedicine and global health


globalisation and international development

social justice.

We’ll train you in innovative social science research methods, from visual analysis to interviewing to geographical information systems (GIS).

Explore the world with us on fieldwork in places such as the US, India and Malaysia, as well as UK-based fieldwork, including opportunities right here in London.

Option modules in the second and final years allow you to direct your study towards your aims and interests. In the final year you’ll design your own project with guidance from our experts, developing the skills to become a researcher in your own right.
