With growing interest in issues such as climate change, migration, environmental degradation and social cohesion, geography is one of the most relevant courses you can choose to study.

Geography is dynamic in nature, examining the real world, and the interactions between the human and physical environments over time and space.

The department aims to encourage global and international understanding and awareness, particularly through the widespread use of a broad range of current and relevant case studies.

Geography also provides a link between the social and natural sciences, examining concepts from a range of sources and directions.

The department aims to provide pupils with knowledge and transferable skills that will set them apart as highly desirable and employable candidates. The department makes much use of ICT, and the value of field-work and outside education in general is central to the philosophy of the department.
