The BSc (Hons) Geography Degree at Lincoln explores scientific perspectives on issues of environmental change and sustainability from local to global scales. It encourages students to develop the analytical, critical and collaborative skills needed to work across broad interdisciplinary issues. Physical Geography at Lincoln focuses on understanding the Earth system, developing skills relevant to managing environmental challenges and hazards such as floods and droughts, as well assisting decision makers in government and the environmental sector. Geography is an integrative subject that aims to provide the intellectual tools necessary to understand the relationship between human society and its environment, and the issues that challenge our future. This course is designed to develop subject understanding and geographical skills progressively in the context of real-world problems, enabling students to apply their learning to contemporary global challenges. With Lincolnâs unique focus on the âsafety and health of the inhabited Earthâ our mission is to deliver a degree that is relevant for environmental and societal challenges in the 21st century. A belief in the importance of interdisciplinary knowledge to address major issues is at the heart of our approach. Our academics are experienced researchers investigating key issues in global development across a spectrum of physical geography, in collaboration with academics in other disciplines, including human geography.
BSc and BA Geography students at Lincoln follow a common central thread of; concept lectures, seminars, small group tutorials, practical teaching of analytical skills through field and laboratory classes, as well as group project work under close personal supervision. In the first year, a series of core modules are designed to integrate both Physical and Human geography skills and concepts. This approach aims to provide a foundation for students to become âgeographersâ in the true, interdisciplinary sense. Year One consists of a range of Physical and Human geography modules which include both fieldwork and practical sessions, and provide the necessary groundwork for further study. In the second and third years, students will focus primarily on the Physical Geography pathway but also have the opportunity to study elements of Human Geography within the context of a broad interdisciplinary approach. Both years comprise a mixture of core modules covering research skills, laboratory techniques, fieldwork and modelling, as well as optional modules, designed to enable students to follow their interests.

Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
The way students will be assessed on this course will vary for each module.

Throughout this degree, students may receive tuition from professors, senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers, practitioners, visiting experts or technicians, and they may be supported in their learning by other students.
