Welcome to Human Geography
Human Geography provides an important bridge between the social and environmental sciences.
Two common themes for both teaching and research within Human Geography are:
- understanding similarities and differences between places, localities and areas in a range of social, cultural, economic and political aspects of human life.
- understanding interactions between people and their environments.
