About the course

The aim of the PG Certificate in Geography is to provide students with the knowledge, skills and competence necessary to learn how to think critically from a geographical perspective. Students will be exposed to contemporary debates in Geography about pressing global, European and Irish issues, and learn specialist knowledge and competence in areas for which our Geographers are internationally recognised for, including political, environmental, urban, social, historical, health and cultural geography, as well as in climate change, GIS, remote sensing, and in other areas. Students will also be exposed to working with civil society and government partners, and develop their sense of the ethical and practical demands of such collaborative research.
