Program overview

BA and BSc Geography students at Lincoln follow a common central thread of concept lectures, seminars, small group tutorials, practical teaching of analytical skills through field and laboratory classes, as well as group project work under close personal supervision. We aim to provide a strong staff to student ratio to support student learning throughout the programme. In the first year, a series of core modules are designed to integrate both human and physical geography skills and concepts. This approach aims to provide a foundation for students to become “geographers” in the true, interdisciplinary sense. The first year consists of a range of human and physical geography modules which include both fieldwork and practical sessions, and provide the necessary groundwork for further study. In the second and third years students will focus primarily on the human geography pathway but also have the opportunity to study elements of physical geography within the context of a broad interdisciplinary approach. Both years comprise a mixture of core modules covering research skills, laboratory techniques, fieldwork and modelling, as well as optional modules, designed to enable students to follow their interests. Students will also be able to select optional modules from the BSc Geography programme as part of their course. Detailed information on all modules can be found within the module tab. Core skills students have learned in gathering, collating and analysing data will be developed in extensive projects and fieldwork, in the UK and overseas. Students also have the opportunity to develop skills in residential fieldwork, through placements and other activities, providing the chance to apply geographical knowledge in real-world settings, and put theory into practice. For mandatory trips in the first and second years, costs of travel and accommodation are covered by the School. Should students choose to participate in any optional, additional third year field trips they will be responsible for covering their travel, accommodation and general living costs.
