Study with us

We offer the opportunity to develop an in-depth knowledge of Australia via individual research projects offered within the Global Affairs MSc and the MSc and MA programs in Geography

Through the Global Affairs MSc, you’ll examine the politics, society, economics and history of the world’s non-western, regional and rising powers and their role within a changing world order.

The suite of master's courses offered by the Department of Geography is one of the largest in the UK, allowing you to specialise in areas of particular interest and to benefit from our multidisciplinary expertise. You will also study with award-winning and world leading experts.
