Module overview

This module aims to explore the historical development, nature and importance of Geography as a field of study, as well engaging with recent developments around what it means to be a Geographer today. It will introduce students to the key academic skills required for success in their studies, and help students understand the various programmes in the school and pathways for specialising in certain sub-fields of Geography, such as cultural geography or quaternary environments, through module selection in subsequent years.
