Geography (Human) | Bachelor's degree | Science | On Campus | 3 years | Cardiff University | United Kingdom
Human geography is about where we live, how we live, and how we want to live. It is the study of people and places – the relations between policies, cultures, social behaviours, economies and environments.
Our world is complex, our lives complicated. Multidimensional social and political issues – local, national and global - stream across our television screens and social media.
This programme, accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (RGS), provides you with the knowledge and critical understanding of the intricate relations between the natural and human world and an awareness of how places outside your everyday experience are created. You will learn how to use your knowledge to shape the views and actions of elected decision-makers, the voluntary sector and industry in order to improve society – at local, national and global scales.
Together, we will explore geographical ideas and practice at various spatial scales, making connections between the local, regional, national and global levels. While the programme will emphasise the social, cultural, political, economic, development and environmental components of geography, it also includes a range of specialist modules which will enable you to pursue your own interests and passions.
Recognising the importance and value of professional experience, we have added a work placement to the second year. This is an opportunity to translate your geographical knowledge into practice, help develop your professional profile and network, and sharpen your employability skills.
