    Technical themes include data evaluation using statistical packages and geographical information systems.

    During the remaining two years of your degree, you will follow optional pathways, five in year two and three in year three, in many cases leading to applied aspects of the discipline. Pathways include Economic, Medical, Urban, Cultural and Environmental Geography on the "human" side and Biogeography, Environmental Change, GIS, Fluvial, Coastal and Dry Regions studies on the "physical" and "technical" sides of geography. These pathways allow you to design a degree structure which reflects your own interests and aspirations.
