Subject outline

Society, People and Place provides an introduction to Human Geography by exploring how our worlds are shaped through the complex relationships between people, culture and our built and natural environment. It aims to evoke your geographical imagination in learning how we view and experience the world, particularly an awareness of how place, space and the environment shape human life. Key concepts and methods in thinking geographically are introduced and require thinking and asking questions about the world, from everyday life to the global scale, by critically engaging with academic texts, popular media, data and visual analysis.
