Hi, know it's a long shot seen as I'm only at GCSE level!! But want to become a Geography teacher and I see it's either a BSc in Physical Geography or BA in Human Geography? Does it matter which I choose? I'm planning on doing GCSE Geography, A-Level Geography then either of the two. After that I want to do a post grad in PGCE.

Thanks!

Most geography degrees allow you to study a mixture of human and physical. BSc does not mean there's no human and BA does not mean there's no physical. It does not matter which you choose, follow your interests - you can be a geography teacher with either degree.

Just do the normal Geography degree (BA/BSc Geography, like at Exeter or Oxford), which will allow you to do both, and you decide on which to specialise in your final year to be awarded either BA or BSc.

Hi,

I am currently doing Bsc Human and Physical Geography, so I get to do a mix of both human and physical modules. I would recommend doing both as it allows you choose the modules which suit you both, and if you want to be a teacher its probably best. I am currently doing work experience at a school, and as a teacher you teach both sides of the discipline, so having knowledge in both is really handy.

Hope this helps!
