This joint honours course will appeal to students keen to extend their geographical knowledge and understanding of how social and physical processes affect our rapidly changing planet while also gaining an insight into business management from one of the UKâs leading Business Schools.
You will spend equal amounts of time studying each subject in each year and there is the opportunity to explore relationships between Geography and Management in an optional final year dissertation.
The Geography modules span human and physical geography in the first year ensuring you have a sound understanding of how social and physical processes vary within the context of places and regions. In second and final years you can specialise in one or the other if you wish, or continue to maintain a balance between the two.
What makes Geography at Loughborough distinctive is our world-renowned expertise in four areas of geography, each of which is directly reflected in the structure and content of our courses. In human geography we focus on Globalization and on Geographies of Social and Political Differences. In physical geography the emphasis is on Earth Surface Processes and Landforms and on Environmental Systems and Resource Management.
The Management modules are taught by the School of Business and Economics and in first year introduce a range of accounting and financial management topics as well as exploring the complexities of managing human resources. In second and final year you will learn about marketing and management science and can choose from a range of specialisms including entrepreneurship, business and project management.
For a full list of areas studied, see the 'What You'll Study' section of the course page on our website.
Modules are examined during and/or at the end of each semester, by written examinations and/or by coursework.
We endeavour to provide prompt and constructive feedback through a variety of means: written comments, audio or video responses and one-on-one meetings. First-year marks are not carried forward. Overall marks obtained in the second and final years are combined in the proportion 40%:60% to produce an overall degree mark.
