Studying Geography in Ireland

As Earth grapples with the threat of global warming and climate change, Geography and Environmental Science graduates are in increased demand as we look to understand population growth, sustainability and a dwindling lack of natural resources.

Because Geography is such an interdisciplinary course, it is simple to mix and match what you are interested in with core subjects. Early modules will include Land, Water and the Environment, Risk and Resilience and Living With Environmental Change. Later in the course, students can focus on specific areas of study, including Political Geography, Migrational Development and Cartography.

Fieldwork is a core part of a Geography degree, and students will be expected to participate in real-world learning in Ireland and overseas if they wish. This can be in the form of data collection, urban planning and connecting society and the human landscape.
