Geography

Geography

In general, geography is considered a science which attempts to explain the world around us and the impact of both natural and man-made factors and events. Those who choose to study geography will typically opt to focus either on physical geography (the study of physical processes and natural environments) or human geography (concerned with human societies and the relations between people and planet). The first of these strands is closely related to Earth sciences, and the second to social sciences such as sociology, anthropology and politics.

Good to Know

Generally, degrees that are a BA will have more human Geography content and degrees that are a BSc, will have more Physical Geography content.
