About

The BSc Geography with Economics (Hons) from Loughborough University degree combines a focus on the social and physical processes affecting our rapidly changing planet, as well developing your knowledge and understanding of economics. 

Overview

This combined BSc Geography with Economics (Hons) from Loughborough University degree is taught in partnership with one of the UK’s leading Schools of Business and Economics.

The geography modules span human and physical geography in the first year ensuring you have a sound understanding of how social and physical processes vary within the context of places and regions. In second and final years of the Geography with Economics degree you can specialise in either human or physical geography or continue to maintain a balance between the two. Alongside the geography component, you will spend one-third of your time studying economics. 

The economic modules on our Geography with Economics BSc (Hons) degree are taught by one of the UK’s leading Schools of Business and Economics. Although the emphasis is largely on geography, in your first year of our Geography with Economics degree you will develop a basic understanding of economics, building a foundation from which you can build on in later years through a range of optional modules.

Your future career

  • A major contributing factor to this is the skills that our students develop during their degree. Employability skills are embedded through our curriculum, either as stand-alone skills-based modules or integrated into all of our topic-based modules. Your personal tutor will introduce you to personal development planning which is done alongside your course to prepare you for graduate life.
  • Our graduates are appointed to posts across a full range of industries and sectors, including posts in administration, finance, management, the armed forces, computing, industry, international aid, development and environmental agencies, and education. Almost all of our graduates are in employment within a few months of graduating, or progress to postgraduate study.
  • We have very strong links with KPMG and Ernst & Young who run bespoke workshops for our students.
