Geography with Economics
Year of entry
This is a combined honours degree course and will appeal to students who are looking to develop a higher level of understanding in geography whilst also gaining some experience in the field of economics.
Why Choose Us?
- Ranked 9th for Human and Social Geography (Sunday Times University Guide 2013)
- Loughborough's School of Business and Economics is consistently rated as a Top-10 UK Business School
- Field trips and study abroad option
Students spend two-thirds of their time studying Geography with one third of each year comprising modules from Economics.
Skills acquisition and assessment are increasingly important for employment prospects and these are given prominence throughout the course.
Compulsory and optional modules in Geography are drawn from those listed under the Single Honours Geography course.
Modules are assessed by examination, by a combination of coursework and examination, or entirely by coursework.
There are opportunities for students on all courses to spend a year abroad between their second and final year studies.
These include studying at a European University through the Erasmus course, studying further afield such as in Australia, Singapore or the USA, or working with community organisations in the majority/‘third world’ through the Youth for Development Course offered by Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO).
Successful completion may lead to the additional award of the Diploma for International Studies.
Our graduates have been appointed to posts in accountancy, finance, fund management and investment analysis. Graduates have also entered teacher training and further education in a range of subjects. Almost all of our graduates are in employment within a few months of graduating, or progress to postgraduate study.
