Geography830<div class="snippet"><iframe width="300" height="169" align="right" src="http&#58;//www.youtube.com/embed/EUVv0g79_Hg" frameborder="0"></iframe><p>People who are interested in exploring the physical and human influences on the environment and how these issues are being addressed at local, national and international levels are invited to apply for this multidisciplinary programme. This programme initially covers a broad variety of topics covering a range of geographical factors including the establishment of sustainable developments, common research techniques and ecology. You are then able to specialise in Stage two, consequently you do not need to know what area of geography you would like to specialise in before you arrive.</p><p>The course offers various opportunities for fieldwork throughout and may include a residential trip in Stage two. You are able to choose modules that allow you to undertake more or less fieldwork depending on your preferences.</p></div> BSc (Hons)F800Undergraduatehttp://catalog.uon-dmz.local/sites/catalogs/UoN/Lists/Courses/AllItems.aspxFalse
