Our BA Geography with Study Abroad programme will provide you with a broad understanding of the geographical aspects of human society and the physical environment, with the opportunity to specialise through modules choices. This four-year degree includes a year studying abroad, between the second and final years. In this third year you study at a university with which we have established links, for example in North America or Australia, and credit for this academic work counts towards your degree at the University of Exeter.
Following a first year that provides a good foundation in human and physical geography, plus key skills, the second and final years offer you the opportunity to shape your degree to match your developing interests with an emphasis on human geography. You will choose from a range of optional modules which draw upon our research strengths, including historical geography, rural geography, nature-culture relations, cultural and political geography, and climate and society. You will also have the opportunity to undertake human geography research methods, participate in a human geography field trip, and carry out a human geography dissertation.
Through field work and other forms of experiential learning, the programme aims to promote your curiosity about social, cultural, and natural environments and to enable you to develop a range of skills specific to the geographer as well as a series of cognitive, generic, and transferable skills.
