MA in Human Geography: Society, Space and Culture


Course Description

The programme is located at the cutting-edge of inter-disciplinary social science and humanities research engaged with the role of space, place and power in shaping modern knowledge and societies. Research training is provided in a range of qualitative methodologies relevant to research within and beyond the university sector. Modules running in 2016-17 include 'Popular geopolitics', 'Security and Securitization,' and 'Geographies of Markets'. A 12 week placement module is being planned and will provide an opportunity to engage with a public, charitable or other non-governmental organisation.

The programme develops specialised knowledge of the interaction between society and space and an understanding of how research underpins cultural analysis, interpretation and practice that gives graduates the opportunity to:

• Develop specialist knowledge and understanding of human geography and its approaches, philosophies and ontologies, and methods of analysis and interpretation;
• Develop critical, reflexive thinking;
• Develop research skills in human geography to prepare for doctoral research in human geography and cognate disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, or to undertake social and cultural research in the private, public and third sectors;
• Develop skills in qualitative, quantitative, textual and visual analysis
• Undertake a substantial piece of research in the field of Human Geography.
