We offer exciting undergraduate degrees in Geography and Environmental Science, including fieldtrips to the Scottish Highlands and Spain. Surveys have shown our graduates are extremely successful in obtaining high-level employment, particularly in social and spatial research, geographical systems applications, environmental management, teaching and local government.
A range of postgraduate courses are available in:
We also have at any one time over a dozen research students working across the discipline.
We have 19 lecturing staff in Geography, plus further research fellows and research assistants, technicians and secretaries. Our size allows us to offer a wide range of option courses on the undergraduate degrees, while remaining sufficiently compact to provide a friendly and informal learning environment. We received 'excellent' gradings in all four review areas in the most recent Teaching Quality Assessment (TQA).
Our staff and PhD students work at the cutting edge in a number of research fields, including environmental change, water and flood management, health and policing. Geography staff lead the University's Centre for Environmental Change and Human Resilience (CECHR) and Scottish Institute for Policing Research.
Geography at Dundee was ranked first equal in Scotland with St.Andrews in the 2008 RAE, with 60% of research activity rated as internationally outstanding or excellent (RAE 3* and 4*).
