University Of Aberdeen Geography
Geography is the study of the Earth’s surface, with particular emphasis on the relationships between people and their environment. Few other subjects cover such a diversity of phenomena, combining elements of the natural sciences, the social sciences and the humanities.
You would normally apply for a Master of Arts (MA) degree; if you wish to study other humanities or social-science courses as well as your Geography courses during your degree, if you intend to specialise in Human Geography, and/or if you wish to emphasise your humanities and social-science training beyond University.
However, your Geography degree provides great flexibility. After all, one of the great things about Geography is that it offers the widest possible curriculum, from studies of inter-cultural relationships, to deep understanding of the earth system.
Geography is key to understanding and resolving many of the most pressing problems faced by society, and the new curriculum reflects the changing nature of these problems and current approaches to addressing them.
