Study type Research


The School is structured into two departments: Earth & Environmental Sciences and Geography & Sustainable Development, both offering several degree options. We also support a lively and expanding community of both research and taught postgraduates within our major research groupings. The Department of Geography & Sustainable Development is a leading centre for geographical scholarship. It integrates the study of the earth system with its landscapes, peoples, places and environments. The Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences was established in 2012, following the appointment of Peter Cawood as Professor of Geology in 2010. It is part of a rich and ongoing tradition of research aimed at understanding our planet.
