Societies are interdependent with the physical environment. Increasingly these are fragile interdependencies, whether related to urbanisation, development or climate change. These acute concerns are our challenge in Geography.
The Cambridge course allows you to study both human and physical geography, although you can choose to specialise in one of these areas from the second year. There are a range of lectures, practical classes, laboratory work and field courses, with some assessment by coursework.
Information about the course structure, departmental teaching arrangements, offered topics and options can be found on the University of Cambridge website: Geography Course Outline
Geography at Queens'
At Queens', Geography students work with their Director of Studies and peers in a series of skill and theme supervisions. These supervisions refine writing and analytical skills, and advance subject knowledge.
Geography at Queens' is supported by the Geography Fund and Pomfret-Pearson Awards for Geography Dissertations.
Studying Geography at Queens has been a fantastic experience! The Queens' Geography intake is slightly smaller than some of the other Colleges, which means you build up strong relationships with the other Queens’ Geographers across all three years. I’ve also really appreciated the Directors of Studies at Queens’, who are incredibly involved and support you properly as you move through the Tripos.
