Geography Undergraduate Courses

Geography allows us to explore Earth’s surface and the human societies who inhabit it.

It stimulates the minds of the naturally curious, asking how and why everything came to be - we inspire this level of curiosity in our Geography students through fieldtrips in the UK and overseas, a first-class teaching team, and facilities equipped to support the real world experience that employers look for.

Fieldwork is central to our Geography courses and cutting-edge research underpins every aspect of them. Our lecturers include active researchers, authors and consultants undertaking important projects worldwide. It means you’ll be kept in touch with the very latest theories and what’s new in the world of geography.

The course challenges me to produce my best work and as a result, I have been able to achieve highly and consistently. The variance in the coursework types means every piece of work is different and keeps you engaged.

"I chose to study Geography because it’s a very attractive degree to employers due to the variety of skills required. After looking at many Geography courses I chose the course at Derby as I really liked the range of modules offered. All of the staff were incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about their subjects - I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to study Geography at degree level at a university where students are its highest priority."
