Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both History and Physical Geography. For the History element of this course, you will develop a lifelong appreciation of the historical past as well as its influence
on the societies of today and tomorrow. At Keele, you’ll study the way humans
have always tried to organise their lives – physically and conceptually,
individually and together. Such an appreciation of the past is essential to understanding where
we are today and how we’re attempting to shape the future – even
societies in the very distant past can be highly relevant in this respect.
You’ll learn the skills of the historian as you deepen your understanding
of eras, continents and cultures from political, social and religious
perspectives. You’ll develop an understanding of different approaches
to history and the range of methods used in its pursuit.
You’ll take classes with world-renowned experts who love their subjects
and love to teach too.

Studying History at Keele will provide you with important skills to
carry through the rest of your life. You’ll develop the sort of enquiring,
open-minded and creative attitude which employers are looking for.
Some career options may require further study, but you could go on to
work as a teacher, librarian, archivist, museum conservator, heritage
manager, barrister, solicitor, civil service administrator, journalist, or a
politician’s assistant or researcher.

For the Physical Geography element of the course, you will take an interdisciplinary perspective that will allow you to embed
influences from fields such as geology, environmental science and life
sciences into your studies. With our global approach you will discover
landscapes and points of view that transcend traditional boundaries.
You will learn to collect and interpret evidence in the field and in the
laboratory, acquiring skills in surveying, GIS and a range of physical and
chemical analytical techniques. You will have the chance to apply your
new skills on field courses in the UK and overseas.

Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. Geography graduates are highly employable. Your degree from
Keele will equip you for future employment or advanced study, and
will establish a lifelong appreciation of the world around you. Your
skills could take you into directly related careers such as environmental
planning or consultancy, or you could apply them in industries such as
energy, agriculture, meteorology or construction. Your problem-solving
skills and global, interdisciplinary approach will be of value in a huge
range of careers.
