Geography Degree Guide

Despite the jokes you might have heard about maps and colouring in, geography is actually a pretty massive (and complicated) subject. Put very broadly, it refers to the study of the earth in terms of its physical make-up, its structure and the people that populate it. Geography as a subject can be divided into two quite distinct strands: physical geography, which involves the science of the earth (incorporating the study of the environment and geology) and human geography, which revolves around people and their movements (including population trends and migration).
