This degree accredited by the Royal Geographical Society with IBG will equip you with the skills, abilities and expertise to face and engage with the challenges facing society today.

BSc Geography [F800] provides a combination of Physical and Human Geography, enabling you to experience the full breadth of the discipline across the physical and human processes that shape landscapes and places across the world.Geographers study the human and physical processes structuring the globe, and the political and environmental issues that arise as a consequence of human interactions with the earth. An understanding of how human society and the global environment relates to all our lives, whether we live in Britain or beyond, is of central importance to the contemporary world.

Entry via F800 is suitable for students who have studied Geography at A level (or similar qualification) together with other Science, Social Science or Humanities subjects. Throughout all three years you will have the opportunity to study both Physical and Human Geography, and to specialise in particular branches of the discipline. As the Institute of Geography and Earth Sciences is one of the largest Geography communities in the UK, we are able to offer an extremely broad range of Geographical specialisms, enabling you to create a degree scheme that suits your individual interests.
