Geographers explore the global challenges that face both humanity and the planet in the 21st century. Based on both our Carlisle Fusehill Street (IFY only) and Ambleside campuses in the heart of the Lake District, you will embrace the mix of natural and social science and humanities that create the diversity and exuberance we call Geography. We will explore the differences and dynamics between culture, political systems, economies and landscapes; but you will also evaluate these as contested spaces that can be viewed through multiple lenses.
Our location allows us to embed high-quality fields, laboratory, geo-spacial and archive work. Residential field-courses at every level take you beyond the Lake District and UK placing your learning in a global context. You will become an effective practitioner with a unique intellectual curiosity and the ability to observe and critically reflect on the world around you.
On this course you will...
- Be taught by experienced lecturers who conduct international research that informs your studies and future career progression.
- Have access to up-to-date technology used in the modern workplace, including advanced Geographical Information Systems and remote sensing.
- Learn to solve large global challenges and local issues like small-scale flood management, boosting your problem-solving skills.
- Develop technical, analytical, and interpretative skills through your studies to boost your employability.
