We use both innovative and traditional teaching methods to provide a top-class student experience
Population continues to be one of the most important issues facing society. Barely a week goes by without some mention of population and human geography issues in the media. Increasingly, migration – whether propelled by disaster or conflict, or provoked by economic aspiration – is the topic that social scientists want to study.
Our one taught undergraduate joint honours programme, BSc Population and Geography, will provide you with essential career-specific skills. Reflecting the strong applied nature of the degree programme, many modules include regular computer workshops where you will gain valuable experience in the analysis of demographic and geographic datasets.
A particular feature of our learning environment is research-led teaching. Our staff conduct research in areas of important demographic and geographic significance and bring to their teaching modules the experience of working in the wider world.
Doing a joint honours degree gives you more skills, knowledge and abilities, which will help in your choice of future career.
Our halls are within walking distance of Social Sciences and linked by the University's award-winning uni-link bus service.
