Society and Space has been recognised by the ESRC in successive review exercises as one of the UK’s top ranked research-training courses in Human Geography.
Human geography is a dynamic discipline with profound influence on current debates in the Social Sciences and Humanities. Human geographers focus on the critical study of the relationships between space and society, in particular the interconnection between environment, place and identity, knowledge, globalization processes, social justice, and a variety of other themes of crucial relevance in our contemporary world.
Society and Space is a world-leading Masters programme in the field. The course builds on the research strengths of our School within the broader field of human geography. It provides students with a rigorous grounding in social theory and mainstream debates and techniques in human geography. It also offers a thorough training in qualitative and quantitative methods.
This Masters is recognised nationally for both the 1+3 and +3 Economic and Social Research Council postgraduate studentships. The programme equips students for careers in high level public research, business and the creative industries, and provides an outstanding academic training for prospective PhD students and for those seeking a Masters level qualification.
The School offers grants up to £2000 for outstanding applicants, contact the Postgraduate Coordinator for further details
