This course aims to develop student ability in making connections between the skills and geographic themes encountered throughout their Geography degree and the world of work. The course also aims to provide a basis for students to define, rationalise and critically reflect on the role and relevance of Geography within academia and wider society.
The course provides students with the opportunity to appreciate the nature of the discipline of geography, how it has been/is studied and what techniques of analysis can be used to understand geographical information. Students also specialise in particular branches of the discipline of their choosing.
