What Will You Study

You will undertake an extensive course of study, gain a wide range of skills and have the opportunity to cover many innovative and exciting modules that make Geography at Lancaster distinctive.

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 Iceland field course on Glacier-Landscape Interactions. Your third year includes the completion of an in-depth dissertation.

In the fourth and final year of the programme you will take four modules from the wide range of masters-level modules on offer by our Environment Centre including Disaster Management, Sustainable Systems and Low-Carbon Energy Use.  You will also undertake a dissertation and crucially, a ten week placement with a graduate employer.  This will give you an introduction to a graduate employer and experience at a critical stage of your study.
