Masters degrees in Transport Geography offer advanced study of the influence of travel and transport on populations and the environment.
Related subjects include Economic Geography and Urban Geography. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Human Geography or Urban Planning.
Different modes of transport have allowed people to connect on a global scale for many decades. As a result, the migration patterns, lifestyle choices and growth of certain populations have fluctuated as technology has developed.
Courses in this field encourage you to examine the processes which underlie the development of transport and travel, particularly its cultural and social significance on local, national and international scales.
Training may include methods in GIS (geographical information systems), remote sensing to explore environmental dynamics and model them. For example, you might examine how aviation has influenced the increase of pollutants in the atmosphere. Or, you may explore land use and conservation in terms of transport planning.
Careers may include roles in public sector services, policy-making for local government and environmental agencies, or urban planning.
