The MA in Geography is an innovative and flexible degree programme. It offers students the opportunity to develop their understanding of human geography while also significantly enhancing their skills. It is available on both a full-time (1 year) and part-time (2 year) basis.
The MA in Geography offers a wide-ranging programme of taught modules. Compulsory modules develop competencies in human geographic thought and field methods; optional methodological modules develop skills in analysis, research and public engagement; and optional specialist modules provide the opportunity for research-led teaching and learning on a range of topics, from urban geography, digital geographies, sexuality and space, place and politics, landscape and health, electoral politics, migration, bodies and environments, spatial justice, among others (optional modules in Geography rotate every two years). Students can also take up to two elective modules in Anthropology, Media Studies and Sociology. The MA in Geography also includes an independent research thesis, to be submitted in August-September. Overall, the programme is designed to nurture independent and critical thinking from a human geography perspective.
