Masters degrees in Social Geography offer advanced study of the relationships between people, natural resources and animal life, and their spatial distribution over geographical locations.
Related subjects include Urban Geography and Cultural Geography. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Human Geography.
Courses in Social and Integrated Geography offer an interdisciplinary approach to learning, combining theory from disciplines such as Anthropology, Geography, Political Science, Cultural Theory and Communications. They are primarily concerned with the spatial constitution of different societies, and the spatial expression of social processes.
Studies typically examine different cultural encounters, cultural change and conflict, and the formation of identity and power in the contemporary world. For example, you might explore how social hegemony and power structures inflate issues of social inequality, identity and belonging.
Or ,you may investigate postcolonial theory including the means through which economic and political practices such as international relations and trade affect migration and urbanisation.
