Themes of study

To help you navigate the many options available, we’ve created five themes of study that can, if you choose, help you to build a focussed degree programme. Our focus on research-enhanced education ensures a robust programme of study and allows you to ‘mix-and-match’ modules to suit your interests. The above image shows King's Geography students on their second year field trip to Western Ghats, India. 

Themes of study

Explore development and inequality within cities and societies in Africa, Asia and Latin American. Plus, discover ways in which urbanisation and global trade impact local societies and economies.

Unique to King's, journey beyond the foundations of computer programming with this theme and use your acquired, highly employable skills in programming, statistics and visualisation (including GIS) to analyse applied issues in (geo)data.

Focus on the physical environment and study topics such as natural hazards, climate and water, landscapes, ecology and conservation. Plus, gain skills in remote sensing, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and laboratory methods.

Bridge human and physical geography by analysing how our interactions with nature affect issues such as pollution and climate change.

Study the relationship between cities, citizenship and culture.


Phil Hubbard, Professor of Urban Studies at King's asks: how can we encourage regeneration without gentrification? Just one of the exciting areas you can study with Geography at King's.
