Geography and Geology


Three students study rock samples through magnifying glasses in a classroom.

With extensive fieldwork opportunities at home and abroad, our Geography and Geology degrees enable you to take a closer look at the world around you.

The range of programmes enable you to develop your understanding of natural phenomena and examine the ways in which human activities both influence and are influenced by their physical environment.

You can choose a broad-based Geography degree, with the option to specialise in human or physical geography, or focus on geoenvironmental hazards or the evolution of the Earth.

Open Days and Virtual Events

A prospective student and his father receive advice from a member of staff during an open day.If you are considering studying at Edge Hill University, the best way we usually recommend to gain an insight into the student experience is to see our stunning campus for yourself by attending an open day.

Our August 2020 open day is going virtual. We will ensure that you can still discover everything that Edge Hill University has to offer and get answers to all of your questions. You will be able to find out more about geography and geology and the University through a series of online activities.

We are continuing to take bookings for subsequent open days while monitoring government advice regarding events. We will communicate all key information to anyone who books to attend.
