Course description

This varied course focuses on the natural processes that occur on the Earth's surface. If you are fascinated by rivers and seas, get excited when you spot unusual strata on a cliff, or just have a strong interest in physical geography, then this joint degree in Geology and Geography could be for you.

This course includes teaching, field work and projects, drawing from the expertise and research knowledge of staff in the School of Earth, Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences and  The School of Environment, Education and Development .

Between Years 2 and 3 you will spend a year studying geographical and geological topics at one of our  partner universities .  You will follow course units that complement those available here at Manchester.

During this time you will write a reflective journal in which you will document the insights you have gained from both your period of study and from engagement with the citizens of the host country. When you return you will give a seminar to Year 2 students explaining what you have learned from your time abroad.

Please visit our school website for further details.
