About the programme

UCAS Code: BA Combined Honours (Y001)

If you've ever wondered about:

  • changes in the environment
  • what an organisation like the World Bank does
  • the spatial pattern of disease

then you've been thinking about topics in geography. The breadth and flexibility of geography make it an ideal subject to study.

You'll have the opportunity to select modules to shape the type of geography you'd like to study - from human to physical geography.

You'll get training in all aspects of modern geography, emphasising the application of geographical knowledge to the problems of the economic, social and physical environment.

Geography is offered by the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology. Discover an active social calendar and sports activities avilable with the Geography Society


To study Geography in your Combined Honours degree, a grade 4 or C in Mathematics at GCSE (or equivalent) is normally required if not taken at A or AS Level.


Find out about our typical modules. Modules are subject to change and could differ on an annual basis.
