90yrs of Geography

Our Heritage, Our Future

Read about our 90 years of Geography at Newcastle

Geography is the world discipline; it connects the international with the local, the natural with the human.  It appeals to those who want to make a difference and who want to engage, explore and understand the world.  

These ambitions have been nurtured by geographers at Newcastle University since its formation in 1928-29. Our heritage is one that staff and students can look back on today with pride and as a source of inspiration. During 2018-2019 we are undertaking a series of activities, events and projects to serve as a small act of recognition and tribute.
