Course Summary:
At Keele University, we're different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it's more than green and lovely, it's a place of research and academic excellence too. At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both History and Human Geography. For the History element of the course, you will develop a lifelong appreciation of the historical past as well as its influence on the societies of today and tomorrow. You will study the way humans have always tried to organise their lives – physically and conceptually, individually and together. Such an appreciation of the past is essential to understanding where we are today and how we're attempting to shape the future – even societies in the very distant past can be highly relevant in this respect. You'll learn the skills of the historian as you deepen your understanding of eras, continents and cultures from political, social and religious perspectives. You'll develop an understanding of different approaches to history and the range of methods used in its pursuit. You'll take classes with world-renowned experts who love their subjects and love to teach too. Studying History at Keele will provide you with important skills to carry through the rest of your life. You'll develop the sort of enquiring, open-minded and creative attitude which employers are looking for. Some career options may require further study, but you could go on to work as a teacher, librarian, archivist, museum conservator, heritage manager, barrister, solicitor, civil service administrator, journalist, or a politician's assistant or researcher. For the Human Geography element of the course, you will explore the way in which humans relate to the environment through lab, lecture and field-based learning opportunities. This course will take you to fascinating fieldwork destinations in the UK and overseas, where you'll add to your growing skills in understanding and influencing the way humans relate to the environment. In the lab, the field and the archive, you'll explore the characteristics, diversity, interdependence and changing nature of places. You'll understand the applications and possibilities Human Geography provides in solving problems, creating wealth and improving quality of life. You'll collect and analyse spatial, social and environmental data, and become familiar with industry standard GIS software for analysing, visualising and integrating that data. Human Geography at Keele was ranked in the top 10 nationally for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey. Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. In addition to providing very specific human geography skills, this course will enhance your abilities in communication, make you proficient in various methods such as GIS or primary data collection, and develop your creativity in problem solving. This will all be invaluable as you address social, environmental, ethical and global problems as part of your studies or in the world of work. You might go on to work as a planning and development surveyor, logistics manager, residential surveyor, town planner, international development worker, transport planner or market researcher. **Course Start Date:** Monday 24 September 2018 **Enrolment Date:** Saturday 22 September 2018

    Excellent***** Keele is the best university to learn, grow, make lasting friends and to succeed in life. I have no regrets choosing Keele.

    The social side has been brilliant yet the course just lets Keele down massively and considering you go to university for the course this is a bit of a problem.
