About

The four year Environmental Geography programme from Cardiff University will develop your ability to research, critically analyse and solve wide-ranging environmental problems.

Overview

The Environmental Geography programme from Cardiff University builds upon the equivalent BSc course by means of a fourth year that provides specialist training in hypothesis testing, critical analysis and problem solving, whilst learning about the process and outcomes of research. You will undertake a specialist research project in a subject area of your choice, working with a member of staff in their area of expertise, and undertake research in the field during the MESci Field Course. The MESci is designed for students who might aim to pursue a research career in academia, government or industry.

The skills and understanding of environmental geographers make them uniquely placed to solve complex and wide-ranging environmental problems that arise in the landscape. This degree will help you to develop these skills and perspectives by providing opportunities for conducting fieldwork in a range of exciting environments and for conducting cutting-edge research with leading scientists in environmental geography.

For students interested in professional research careers in Geography, the four-year MESci provides a strong basis for investigation and research in this subject.

Distinctive features

  • Experience all aspects of Earth Sciences and Geography in the first term before deciding which degree you wish to pursue.
  • Two overseas fieldtrips with travel and accommodation paid for by the School, as well as plenty of fieldwork in South Wales and the UK.
  • South Wales is a fascinating area in which to explore environmental geography with a huge range of natural environments and a wealth of practical study opportunities.
  • A major summer project between years two and three actively encourages you to devise and design your own independent research.
  • A master's research dissertation on a topic of your choice can widen your career options.
