What Will You Study

Human Geography is a social science concerned with the actions, interactions and spatial patterns of people, rather than those of the physical world. It enables you to focus on diverse areas of human and environmental geography.

For example, you could launch your teaching career with our unique Communicating Geography programme. This programme is a distinctive feature of your degree course and gives you experience of working in a local school in order to develop your own project on a geographical topic. It will also help you to develop vital career skills. Alongside this you can take options such as Enterprise for the Environment, where you work with academics and staff from companies based in our Environmental Centre, or our New York City field course on inequality and the city.

On our Geography/North America degree courses, you will spend your second year at a partner university in the United States or Canada. You will follow your chosen university’s study programme while away from Lancaster. The modules you take overseas will count towards your final degree assessment.

Your third year includes the completion of an in-depth dissertation.
