- One of the few programmes in the UK to combine politics and geography
- Our interdisciplinary programme will give you the unique opportunity to question how politics and geography interact to shape the world we live in and learn from internationally-recognised scholars
- You’ll join an intentionally small community of students allowing you to actively discuss and debate your ideas and work closely with academic staff
- Get involved with the Politics and Geography student societies, make friends, attend beach BBQ’s, conservation volunteering, surf trips and hear from guest speakers
- You’ll develop an understanding of the central problems of change and uncertainty in contemporary political and ecological systems that will be valued by public, private and third sectors employers
How will I learn?
We use a wide range of teaching methods as well as encouraging independent study with an increasing emphasis on seminar discussion and project work in your second and third years:
- Project and group work
- Independent study
- Field work
- Laboratory sessions
- Access to the latest geographical information systems (GIS), mapping statistics and coding software
- Interactive computer-based approaches to learning through our virtual learning environment
How will I be assessed?
- Individual and group presentations
- Dissertation in your final year
You must pass your first year modules in order to proceed but your performance at this level does not count towards your final degree classification.
