Why study Geography? There has never been a better or more important time to study Geography. With growing interest in issues such as climate change, migration, environmental degradation and social cohesion, geography is one of the most relevant courses in education. Geographers are also highly employable.
Whatever your passion for the world – fascination with landscapes or concerns about inequality – geography will provide you with knowledge and transferable skills that will reward you personally and advance you professionally.
Geography will give you the knowledge and understanding of:
- Why our human and physical environments and landscapes appear as they are, how they form and operate, and how they inter-relate at various scales
- How and why patterns of human and physical features differ from place to place across the earth
- Differences and inequalities within the human world; especially the economic, social and political causes of inequality and economic development
- The importance of different spatial scales – global to local – and time scales for physical and human processes, together with their interactions and interdependence
