Overview

Arts - Geography examine the cultures, economies, societies, physical landscapes and environments of the Earth using a unique combination of the humanities, social and natural sciences. We view the Earth, its inhabitants and the processes that form and transform the world we live in using a spatial perspective. 

This particularly geographical way of looking at the world allows for an inter-disciplinary exploration of processes operating in specific places. 

As a student of Geography at University College Cork, you will learn to view the world using this geographical lens. Geographers examine geographical processes in a variety of thematic areas within geography including landscape, heritage, migration, culture, food, tourism, environment, economy, cities, climate, geomorphology and development.
