Geography is the integrated study of landscapes, peoples, places and environments and is therefore a vital subject through which to increase understanding of our rapidly changing planet. Through the interlinked strands of human and physical geography, the discipline bridges the social sciences and natural sciences.
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 Geography BA (Hons) course.
Physical geographers at Loughborough are internationally recognised for pioneering new ways of thinking and working in hydrological and ecosystem science, and polar and alpine research. In human geography, our staff have led intellectual agendas in children, youth and familiesâ research and developed distinctive contributions to knowledge on migration, identity and the state.
When it comes to designing this Geography BA (Hons) degree, undergraduates benefit directly from staff research expertise through the modular choices available. You'll be taught a broad foundation in Year 1 that will allow you to increasingly specialise in human geography (BA) or physical geography (BSc), or maintain a balance of both, in subsequent years.
For a full list of areas studied, see the 'What You'll Study' section of the course page on our website.
Modules are assessed either by examination, a combination of coursework and examination or entirely by coursework. Fieldwork, report writing and group presentations play an important part in some modules in each year. For an indicative overview of the aims, learning outcomes and structure of this course please see the programme specification.
