Geography is one of the most exciting subjects to study at university. We live in an interdependent world caught up in chains of events which span the globe. We depend upon increasingly fragile human and physical environments, whose complex interactions require sophisticated analysis and sensitive management. These issues present intellectual and practical challenges of the first importance and they are amongst the central problems of modern geography.
If you would like to understand 'the big picture', then geography has a lot to offer you.
The Department of Geography encourages study at postgraduate level and has staff and facilities to support advanced research in a number of fields.
Research in the Department of Geography reflects the specific interests of staff and their graduate students. The mix of interests is, of course, dynamic.
