In Geography and Economics (Hons) you’ll learn about the production and distribution of wealth and the consumption of goods and services. You’ll also cover many contemporary world issues. In Geography you’ll study the impact of these issues in terms of geopolitics, sustainable development, environmental conservation and globalisation.
You’ll begin your degree following modules including the Principles of Economics as well as Society and Space - Human Geography. In your second year, you’ll study subjects such as Intermediate Microeconomics; Geographies of Political Economy, and Environment and Society. In your final year you will undertake an extended essay, guided by your academic supervisor. This essay offers a chance to investigate a topic of your choice related to both aspects of your joint degree. While completing the essay, you will use the essential research, analytical and academic writing skills you have learnt throughout your degree.
