We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Political Geography offer advanced study of the influence of political factors in the distribution of populations, and their effect on the environment.
Both taught MA and MSc degrees are available in this field. Related subjects include Economic Geography and Cultural Geography. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Anthropology or Human Geography.
Courses in this field offer an exploration of theories within international politics and human geography, to investigate the political dynamics, consequences and discourses of contemporary geopolitics.
Theory typically covers the role of state governments and associated institutions such as regulatory bodies in shaping economics, international relations, communications and social justice.
For example, you may examine sustainable development for urban planning policies on national and international scales. Or, you might research community participation with local, regional and national issues such as environmental conservation.
You could even explore material culture and trade relations in relation to social and political hegemony, or how political conflicts affect territories and resources during wartime.
Careers may include roles within international organisations, the public sector, NGOs or charities, the media and think tanks.
