This varied degree will give you the chance to study the ways in which humans interact with different environments, while gaining an understanding of how human activity has changed over time. Core modules will introduce you to themes in modern human geography exploring how people interact with the world around them, how globalization is shaping the world, and the impact this is having on urban development and population growth. You'll also build your understanding of historiography and acquire other valuable historical research skills.
Because our research interests are so diverse at Leeds, we also offer an impressive range of optional modules in both subjects. For example, you could study political geography or sustainable development alongside the fall of the Roman Empire, colonial Africa and the Harlem Renaissance. You could even choose modules including international fieldwork. It's a fascinating opportunity to gain new insights into the many facets of human behaviour.

Leeds was an amazing experience, probably the best student city in the UK. There’s no better feeling than whiling away the summers in Hyde Park with a cider and some good mates, and the nightlife is incredible – so many different student nights on, and the taxis are dirt cheap. A great bonding experience for all is The Otley Run – a 21 strong pub crawl that takes you into the city and how I forged some of my best friendships. In terms of the Uni, my course was amazing – loads of detailed lectures, secondary materials and passionate lecturers.
Over all my experience of uni has been brilliant so far. It's a lovely campus with something for everyone, it has literally everything on it so there's no need to ever even leave campus. But the city center is super close (10-15 minute walk) and there are loads of parks too

Lots of societies to join, and therefore in turn, lots of opportunities to make friends.
