Postgraduate Geography

Geography at Newcastle is an internationally recognised centre for postgraduate research and teaching.

We have more than 30 full-time academic staff whose work covers both human and physical geography. Our work is characterised by being simultaneously conceptually sophisticated and policy relevant.

We have been running successful postgraduate programmes for many years and have a very strong track record of research council collaborative funding.

Our vibrant research environment attracts people from very diverse backgrounds, ensuring you are part of an international community of researchers. We have a community of almost 50 PhD students.

We offer three MA programmes which can be studied full-time (one year) or part-time (two years). Our MA programmes offer students an excellent choice of modules and provide research-led teaching of the highest quality.

We also offer supervision for research degrees (PhD and MPhil) in an innovative and supportive research environment. You are encouraged to make contact with relevant members of staff in order to discuss your research interests. Information on staff research interests can be found here.

We provide high quality facilities for all of our postgraduate students, including a dedicated postgraduate suite. We have a student-run postgraduate forum, and students hold regular reading groups, conferences and social events.

Postgraduates play a vital role in the academic life of our department and are an integral part of our teaching programme.

As part of the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology, we are also able to provide the benefits of an inter-disciplinary research environment for students working on topics that cross disciplinary boundaries.
