Overview

This BA in Geography at University of East Anglia focuses on the human impact of a changing world. As the world develops – whether through technology, politics, culture or climate – our understanding of it must change too, as well as our ways of living within it. You will explore some of humanity’s most pressing problems, such as energy, food and water provision alongside biodiversity and sustainability.

You will gain the skills and knowledge to understand and investigate these challenges, with an emphasis on the geographical dimensions of societal change through the study of communities, cultures and their environment.

You will acquire a broad understanding of geographical concepts and issues, as well as how to collect data, formulate research questions, present results, and develop practical transferable skills. You’ll also take part in field work, and have the chance to work on group projects. 

During your first year you will gain a solid understanding of the challenges facing the natural environment and human society. As the course progresses, you will have the opportunity to develop valuable, practical experience through fieldwork, alongside the opportunity to acquire specialist theoretical knowledge in such areas as biodiversity conservation and human society, climate change or environmental politics.
