This programme offers you the opportunity to study population sciences and human geography, two subjects which are concerned with the ways in which human populations change and the causes and consequences of that change.
This exciting programme provides you with the opportunity to examine critical issues including migration, population growth, globalisation and climate change which are central to many of todayâs national and global challenges.
Taught by a team of experts with international research experience, the BSc in Population and Geography explores key concerns in population and geography across the developed and developing world. The BSc in Population and Geography will equip you with key transferable and analytical skills, which are increasingly in demand by employers including central and local government departments, the National Health Service, the Office of National Statistics, market research, insurance and data analysis companies, NGOs/Charities and international agencies such as the United Nations and the World Health Organisation. There are also excellent opportunities for postgraduate studies upon completion of your BSc programme.
You will usually study four modules in each semester, a total of eight modules per year. Typical modules include: Introduction to Quantitative Methods; Society, Culture and Space; A Global World; Introductory Geographic Information Systems; Population Processes in the Developed World; Migration; Geographies of Social Justice, Welfare and Rights and Geographies of Housing and Home
You will be assessed through a mixture of coursework and end-of-semester examinations. Coursework can take the form of a written essay, small project, computer exercise, or a poster or oral presentation.

The University of Southampton is a fantastic university which undertakes world-class research and amazing teaching. I have experienced first-hand the enthusiasm and passion of my lecturers and seminar tutors. The campus is particularly brilliant due to the large number of facilities based directly on campus such as the GP, Costa, Banking etc. In addition, the campus is incredibly green and is filled with nature and animals. The pastoral care is also very good and so it is easy to feel welcome at this institution.
