Undergraduate Degrees BA/BSc
Geography has been taught at King's College London since 1854. Today the Geography Department at King's admits around 170 students each year to its BA Geography and BSc Geography Degrees. We are a large but friendly and well-resourced department.
Studying Geography at King’s enables our students to examine some of the key issues facing the world today. These include climate change, environmental degradation, sustainability and urban regeneration. At undergraduate level our BA Geography and BSc Geography degrees provide our students with both specialist knowledge within a broad interdisciplinary education. Students are encouraged to develop their own interests and skills. The amount of choice and specialisation increases as you move forward through the degree.
A central part of your degree will be learning key geographic skills. These transferable skills focus on developing your ability to carry out research and data analysis which will stand you in good stead when it comes to entering a career or moving on to further study. Practical training starts in the first year, including the field week in term 1. Our second year field trips allow you to put your ideas into practice. In your final year there is one-to-one support for the research that students carry out as part of their dissertations.
The department currently fully funds a first year field trip to Mojácar, Spain in February, giving students a taster of a range of topics and approaches, and a chance to get to know fellow students and staff.
