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.
