About this program

Awarded by: Northumbria University Newcastle

Are you keen to build your skills in research, analysis and reporting to an advanced level by exploring ways in which we interact with and interpret the world around us? MGeog Human Geography takes a critical and theoretically informed approach to a range of applied topics that underpin an understanding of human geography.

Drawing on cutting-edge geographical research, this integrated master’s course incorporates a diverse range of specialist topics including social exclusion, migration, sustainable development, creative industries, housing, urban regeneration and planning.

Your first year will incorporate a broader understanding of the subject area of geography, with a specific focus on human geography for the remainder of your course. From the second year of your course, you can tailor your options to meet your own personal learning and career goals. This includes significant opportunities for independent research projects in your final two years.

Throughout the duration of this course you will have the opportunity to utilise our industry-leading facilities, in addition to undertaking UK and overseas fieldtrips to provide invaluable experience in applying conceptual and methodological aspects of your learning.

There is also the opportunity to follow a specified pathway through the course to receive a degree with partial accreditation from the Charted Institute of Housing.
