Geography and Planning BA

This dual honours degree programme examines how people and places interact. Combining the best elements from courses in Geography and Urban Studies and Planning, this course draws on the teaching and research expertise of staff working across both departments.

This degree is highly flexible. The modules are a combination of geographic and urban planning topics, which offer complementary insights into the processes, policies and practices operating within urban and rural areas. You can select modules in order to specialise in particular areas.

The first year will establish the foundations of your knowledge of human geography and planning. In your second year, the course will build on your understanding of economic, social and political geographies along with the planning policies and market processes that shape change in our towns and countryside. Your third year allows you to specialise in the modules that interest you, and allows you to complete your own research project.
