Course Information

Explore concepts of economics and human geography – from globalisation, consumerism and sustainability, to the handling of epidemics and political and economic responses to climate change – with our BSc Geography and Economics (Regional Science) with Professional Experience degree.

This interdisciplinary, four-year degree, led by experts from the Department of Geography and Environmental Science and the Department of Economics, examines issues that dominate the news and shape the world in which we live. An integrated placement year between your second and final year enables you to gain valuable real-world experience in the workplace.

You’ll address challenges across a range of scales – local, regional, national and global – from the spatial implications of economic processes, to the economic impact of social processes.

Develop your knowledge and expertise as you critically analyse:

  • how resources are allocated and used, and the consequences for social and economic wellbeing
  • the impact of consumerism and sustainability
  • issues of work, employment and development
  • how neighbourhoods and urban spaces are regenerated
  • the application of micro-economics and macro-economics to globalisation.

We’ll support you to develop subject-specific and transferable skills, including:

  • GIS and remote sensing
  • modelling and cartography
  • statistical and numerical analyses
  • research techniques, including quantitative analysis, interviewing and ethnographic approaches
  • teamwork, communication, and leadership.

Throughout your degree, you’ll have the opportunity to shape your learning and follow your individual interests through our wide range of optional modules.
