The Department Aims
The Department has three general aims, consistent with those of the University as a whole:
- To provide quality teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, informed and invigorated by the research and scholarship of academic staff.
- To provide access to the widest possible range of sources of knowledge, and the resources to enable the pursuit of learning and scholarship.
- To provide an environment in which all members of the Department can enhance their skills and apply them to a wide range of theoretical and practical problems in the service of the wider community.
There are over 30 full-time academic staff in the Department, including 12 professors. Staff numbers are equally divided between human and physical geography and our research and teaching strengths range across the discipline.
