Human Geography (Society and Space)
Human geography is a dynamic discipline with profound influence on current debates in the social sciences and humanities. Human geographers focus on the relationships between space and society, particularly the interconnection between environment, place and identity; knowledge; globalisation processes; social justice; and a variety of other vital themes relevant to the contemporary world. This programme provides you with a rigorous grounding in social theory and mainstream debates and techniques in human geography. It also offers a thorough training in qualitative and quantitative methods. Options allow for the development of specialisms in historical-cultural themes, postcolonial and decolonial geographies, spatial modelling, and debates surrounding affect and biopolitics. The programme is closely linked to the University's Cabot Institute, which brings together multidisciplinary research into all aspects of global environmental change. Read more from our current and former students, as well as programme lecturers, on the Society and Space blog.
You will complete three core units and choose from a selection of optional units. You will then complete a research-based dissertation of up to 15,000 words, which is submitted in September.
