BA (Hons), Full-time With Time Abroad
, Duration: 4 Years
On this course you will study specialised human and social geography modules such as Geographies of Development, People and Place and Urban Geographies. At the same time, you can select modules dedicated to the development of regions of the world such as Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and Latin America, and a range of complementary options from related disciplines including anthropology, politics, economics, environmental studies and media.
Fieldwork and field courses are a vital part of the degree. In addition to field-work elements in a number of the taught modules we have a weekend residential trip in the first year and a longer trip in either the UK or overseas.
In your core modules, youâll examine the key principles of human geography and their application to current issues within international development. Youâll select the remaining modules to reflect your own interests. Currently our options modules cover topics such as natural resources, social anthropology, politics, the environment, media and economics. Youâll also have the opportunity to participate in a weekend residential trip.
Youâll continue to advance your knowledge of human geography and international development alongside practical field and research skills. This will include your use of GIS. You will participate in a residential field course in either the UK or overseas. You can choose option modules from a broad selection which reflect your developing interests or career aspirations. These include geography modules, topics across different fields of international development, and the opportunity to study a foreign language.
Youâll spend your third studying abroad at one of our partner universities before returning to UEA for your final year.
In your final year thereâs a greater emphasis on independent study and employability. There are no core modules other than the dissertation, giving you the flexibility to tailor your studies to your interest, and youâll undertake a final-year dissertation on a topic of your choice. Youâll also have the chance to complete a work placement at one of our many partner institutions and organisations within the UK.

UEA has a great atmosphere which makes both studying and socialising easy. The facilities on campus range from the library to the bar and from shops to accommodation which means that it is possible to live on campus without venturing away but at the same time the city of Norwich is a lovely place to explore. The university had the largest natural environment in the UK which includes a lake and woodlands which are relaxing to explore.

The course itself has been so interesting that I can't wait until the second year when the content looks even more fascinating. The environment is welcoming. All services you would ever need can be found around campus and their opening times are amazing - especially in a bind! The library is open really late and it's super quiet so it's the perfect place to study, and the range of books they stock is remarkable!
