If you are inspired by understanding the world around you then geography is for you. At both local and global levels many of the main challenges facing the world in the 21st century are related to geography. Studying an exciting mix of physical and human geography, this course will equip you with the wide range of knowledge and skills needed for the modern workplace.
The BSc (Hons) Geography is an accelerated degree that can be completed in three years rather than the traditional four. Graduating early allows you to get out there and start earning, travelling or signing up to postgraduate study a year ahead of your peers.
Field trips are a valuable and memorable part of studying geography and this course includes several: both day trips in the local area and longer residential trips. This involves two compulsory residential field trips, one in Scotland and one in Europe. These are currently in the Cairngorms (year 2) and the Swiss Alps (year 3)*. You will be required to pay a contribution towards the costs of these trips. Further information is available upon request.
