Some modules, notably the tutorials and field courses are assessed entirely through coursework.?

            Student Views

            I love it! I have been exposed to a variety of different subject areas and it has allowed me to choose modules to fit with my own interests. The tutors are great, approachable and friendly. I would recommend the course and Aberystwyth to anyone considering doing human geography. Ashley Wilding

            I love my Human Geography course because it has made me look at the world around me in a different and more interesting way. I can understand why it is like it is, and what it might look like in the future. It has really opened up my eyes to the different processes which shape our modern society. Rebecca Priest

            My course - L700 Human Geography - allows you to look at the world from a different perspective, appreciating the idea of place and the way a sense of place shapes everyday life. I now can sit on a park bench and 'people-watch'; analysing how people act in public spaces, but under the title of ethnography. Human geography takes into account the spatial relations of areas that have not been considered before, or have been taken for granted. It is like looking through a pair of epistemological glasses.
