Arts - Geography at University College Cork is the study of earth as the home of people.


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.


The breadth of this programme means our graduates are more able to exploit a wide range of employment opportunities. The integrative nature of geography has become a major asset in a world of constant change, in which many employers seek adaptability and flexibility.
