From glaciers in New Zealand to megacities in South America, geography is the study of the earthâs processes, both natural and human. As a subject it has the capacity to take you anywhere. When you embark on this journey, our wide-ranging and stimulating Geography degree helps you to see the world in a whole new light. Using an integrated human and physical geography perspective, you explore some of the most pressing issues facing the planet in the 21st-century.
These include globalisation, population growth, resource shortages, geopolitical instability and climate change. But thereâs room to examine local challenges, too. Set on the edge of the South Downs National Park, our department is perfectly placed to make the most of the diverse and beautiful landscapes that surround it, providing you with a variety of fieldwork and recreational opportunities.
Each year of study has a distinctive emphasis. Year 1 is about âbecoming a geographerâ and you receive a broad introduction to geography and geographical issues today.
In Year 2, you are encouraged to develop your geographical practice through specialised modules including fieldwork, laboratory and technology-based elements.
By the final year, you are ready to apply your expertise to understand complex geographical problems through original research and to promote the external impacts of your work. A third-year project enables you to work alongside our highly respected research staff and showcase your skills to employers.
The programme recognises the value of geography to society and emphasises the importance of communicating this effectively to diverse audiences. This combination of solid subject knowledge and awareness of impact produces well rounded, confident geographers ready to enter a variety of growing areas of employment in government, science and industry.
Throughout your studies, your future employability is a key priority for us and careers guidance is on hand. Our Geography graduates have the analytical and research skills to secure roles within the Government, the public, private and voluntary sectors, teaching, cartography and surveying, planning, environmental consultancy, nature conservation and sustainability.

Winchester was such a pretty, lovely place to study. It’s a real community oriented university, you’ll get to know everyone here which is great. The nightlife isn’t crazy like, say, Brighton, there are a few nice clubs here, The SU throws the Bop every Wednesday is bloody mental, and if you want to have a really good night out you can get a cheap taxi down to Southampton. My tutors were really supportive, and they drove me to the best of my ability - they offered great feedback and were always available for a chat.
