This BA Geography (Hons) programme at Bishop Grosseteste University considers changing environments and landscapes, the effects of natural processes on the earth, the interaction of people with the planet, and the fortunes and fates of ecosystems.

Geography students also learn about the enjoyment of and exploitation of the world’s natural and human resources, the promotion and protection of environments and peoples, issues of inequality and division, and the ways by which we govern and plan countries, cities and countrysides.

Are you looking to explore the many attractions and dilemmas of the world around us? Geography is an amazing discipline to study at university.
