Geography is an integrative subject that seeks to understand the relationship between human society and its environment, addressing some of the critical issues that are challenging our future.

The BA (Hons) Geography Degree at Lincoln explores social science perspectives on issues of globalisation, sustainability, geo-politics and cultural change ranging from the local to the global scale. It encourages students to develop the analytical, critical and collaborative skills needed to work across broad interdisciplinary issues.

A belief in the importance of interdisciplinary knowledge to address major issues is at the heart of our approach. Our academics are experienced researchers investigating key and emerging issues in global development across a spectrum of human geography, in collaboration with academics in other disciplines, including physical geography.

Students can engage in research and project work that builds on the expertise of staff. This includes the ‘Student as Producer’ initiative that facilitates undergraduates and academics to collaborate on research activities.
