Program Description

Covering physical landscapes, the natural environment and global change, our Geography BSc (Hons) course can show you how our world is changing.

Having taught geography for over 40 years, Coventry is ranked as one of top 10 universities in the UK for ‘Geography and Environmental Studies’ in the Guardian University Guide 2020.

This course focuses on the dynamics of physical landscapes and their links with people and places. We will cover the natural environment – landforms, glaciers, rivers and coasts, together with the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and geosphere. You should seek new insight into global issues, such as environmental change, climate change, sustainability and pollution.

We offer a common first year across the Geography BSc and the Geography BA courses, so students will touch upon topics covered in the Geography BA, namely human geography.

Past students have studied natural and cultural landscapes in the Lake District and the processes of change in human and physical environments. They have put into practice various physical geography field techniques in Tenerife examining themes, for instance biodiversity, environmental gradients and hazards such as wildfire and volcanic eruptions, and also considered a range of environmental management issues in Morocco.
