Geography is an environmental science concerned with the causes and organisation of natural and human phenomena across the globe

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.
