University of Derby Geography

University of Derby Geography, Our BSc (Hons) Geography course gives you the chance to specialise in either the physical, environmental or human areas of geography – or a mixture of them all – thanks to our extensive range of optional modules. We are constantly updating our curriculum to reflect the sustainable development challenges we face such as food security and water scarcity.

Real-world learning in action

With its strong emphasis on applying theory to practice, BSc (Hons) Geography gives you every opportunity to gain hands-on experience through practical sessions and field based learning in the UK and overseas.

Fieldwork is central to this course, helping you see and understand what you have covered in class, and how reality can differ from text books. We take full advantage of the many interesting locations on our doorstep, such as nature reserves, East Midlands Airport, solar farms, sites of special scientific interest, ancient woodlands, quarries, Skegeness, Nottingham the Peak District National Park.

We also offer residential field courses as an integral part of your studies. These could take you to locations as varied as the Lincolnshire coast, the Mediterranean and Morocco. Any fieldwork associated with compulsory modules is included in your course fee
