Trosolwg y cwrs

A key aspect of the Human Geography BSc course lies in its emphasis on the relevance of the subject. You will learn how to use the knowledge you accumulate to shape the views and actions of elected decision-makers, the voluntary sector and industry in order to improve society.

The course explores geographical ideas and practice at various spatial scales, making connections between the local, regional, national and global levels. It covers the key social, cultural, political, economic, development and environmental components of geography and allows you to take specialist modules which build on your own interests and passions.

You also have a valuable opportunity to translate your geographical knowledge into practice through a work placement module in the second year. This module enables you to ease your transition between education and the ‘real world’ by providing crucial work experience beyond the University.

The course includes a wide range of learning opportunities, from workshops and seminars through to practical projects and field visits.  Field study visits are a key aspect of the course.  Previous destinations include Amsterdam, Hong Kong, New York, Los Angeles and Tanzania.

Note that some field study visits involve additional costs to students.

Strwythur y cwrs

Rydym yn gweithio gyda'n myfyrwyr ar hyn o bryd yn diweddaru ac yn gwella cynnwys y cwrs hwn. Mae’r wybodaeth isod yn adlewyrchu'r cwricwlwm presennol a fydd yn newid yn ôl pob tebyg. Disgwylir i ni fod wedi gorffen adolygu'r cwrs erbyn mis Awst 2019. Bydd y dudalen hon wedi'i diweddaru erbyn mis Hydref 2019 i ddangos y newidiadau.

This is a three-year full-time degree. All three years contain compulsory and optional modules. You will need to earn 120 credits a year. Modules are usually worth 20 credits, although some are worth 10 and the final-year dissertation is worth 30 credits.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2019/20. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2019

Blwyddyn un

Year one gives an introduction to the key dimensions of Human Geography, a showcase of the innovative approaches geography brings to contemporary issues and strong overview of urban, environmental and rural development issues. Through a study skills module, you will also develop the essentials for studying at degree level.

Although you need to earn 120 credits, year one is an introductory year and the modules do not count towards the grade of your final degree.

Blwyddyn dau

Year two builds on the foundations provided in the first year, looking in more depth at the history of geographical thought and the cultural, development, environmental, economic, political and social sub-fields of human geography. The Citizen Geographies module includes the possibility of a work placement. The second year includes an optional field study visit to a European city (currently Amsterdam for 2016).

Blwyddyn tri

Year three explores the broader relevance of geography to policy and society in the Public Geographies module. This and the dissertation are compulsory. You are then enabled to further specialise in particular areas of Human Geography, with a broad choice of modules and field study visits.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.
