Description

Advertisement

The course consists of a teaching programme followed by a supervised dissertation. Teaching is focused around three core modules:

* Space, Policy and Practice: Geography, the State and Civil Society
* Contemporary Debates in Human Geography
* Geographical Research in Practice

The core modules are complemented by an extensive range of options which offer the opportunity to apply these geographical insights in a range of speciality areas. The degree is informed by contemporary critical theory, and focuses on a range of scales from the domestic and local, the urban and the regional, to the national and the global.

The modules are assessed through continuous assessment (a variety of seminars, essays, project work and practical exercises) and examinations.
