The four-year BA Geography with European Study programme mirrors the BA Geography programme at the Streatham Campus, but also gives you an exciting opportunity to spend the third year of your degree at one of our partner universities abroad. This is part of the EU-funded Erasmus programme, for which Exeter is one of a small number of fully-recognised UK Geography Schools. Your work during your year abroad is assessed and contributes to your final degree classification; 'with European Study' will be recorded on your degree certificate.
The programme will provide you with a broad understanding of the geographical aspects of human society and the physical environment, with the opportunity to specialise through module choices. Following a first year that provides a good foundation in human and physical geography, plus key skills, the second and final years in Exeter offer you the opportunity to shape your degree to match your developing interests with an emphasis on human geography. You’ll choose from a range of optional modules which draw upon our research strengths, including historical geography, rural geography, nature-culture relations, cultural and political geography, and climate and society. You will also have the opportunity to undertake human geography research methods, participate in a human geography field trip, and carry out a human geography dissertation.
