Comments about BA Geography and Politics - At the institution - Sheffield - South Yorkshire

  • Objectives
    The dual honours degree in Geography and Politics focuses on political geography ('politics in its spatial dimension') alongside politics and international relations. The course combines the application of concepts, theories, and methods used in the study of politics to analyse political ideas, institutions and practices, with an understanding of how geographical concepts and skills can be used in suggesting possible solutions for real world problems, and in the evaluation of solutions and policies proposed by others.
