Human geography is a dynamic discipline with profound influence on current debates in the social sciences and humanities. Human geographers focus on the relationships between space and society, particularly the interconnection between environment, place and identity; knowledge; globalisation processes; social justice; and a variety of other vital themes relevant to the contemporary world.
Options allow for the development of specialisms in historical–cultural themes, postcolonial and decolonial geographies, spatial modelling, and debates surrounding environmental conflict and science and technology.
This Human Geography - Society and Space programme at University of Bristol equips you for a career in high-level public research, business or the creative industries, and provides an outstanding academic training for prospective PhD students and for those seeking a master's-level qualification.
