World Top 100 Ranking (QS 2013)

Geography embraces the study of human societies and their environment, and is one of the few subjects in which human and physical aspects of the environment are integrated. Our flexible degree programme enables students to gain an understanding of the major global, regional and local processes that shape our world and the challenges we will face in the future.

"Had I studied anywhere other than Queen’s, I don’t think I would have had such an amazing experience. The friendliness, warmth and community atmosphere within Geography means that help is never far away and this is coupled with an exceptional standard of teaching. I can’t picture myself anywhere else."
Sophie Truran, BSc Hons Geography

Although the majority of our graduates are interested in pursuing careers in geography-related areas (town and country planning, environmental impact, Land and Property Services [formerly Ordnance Survey]) significant numbers develop careers in a wide range of other sectors.

BSC Archaeology, Palaeoecology and Geography

We house the Centre for Archaeological Fieldwork in the school. This self-funded private unit obtains commercial work from NIEA, the police and civil engineering companies.

This exposes our students to employers, providing them with clear details regarding what the modern market requires from Archaeology. This information is then fed back into our course modules, especially those on excavation techniques.
