University rank #601 (WUR) ,
This integrated Masters course combines undergraduate and postgraduate study over four years, meaning you will graduate with a single Masters-level degree. It is designed to provide you with the opportunity to study the subject in greater depth than would ordinarily be achieved during a standard three year undergraduate course.


You will benefit from a broad grounding in geography that explores a series of themes drawn from across the discipline. You can also choose to follow a route through the course that allows you to specialise in physical geography. Exploration of the rapidly developing and exciting field of geospatial technologies (including GIS, remote sensing and UAVs) is a consistent theme of the course. In your final year you will explore developments and debates at the forefront of geography as a discipline. You will learn and apply advanced geospatial techniques within the context of research, business, and in national and international disaster risk reduction and management.
