School of Geography

Welcome to the School of Geography

The School of Geography is a leading international centre for geographical scholarship.

The field of geography is very broad and we teach right across this spectrum, offering undergraduate, postgraduate taught, and postgraduate research courses, with subjects ranging from flooding to financial crises and areas of study from Italy to India.

Members of academic staff are leading international researchers in their specialist fields and this research activity underpins our teaching, ensuring that the latest developments are incorporated into our teaching programme.
