Our undergraduate courses focus on the impacts of economic, social, political and cultural change on the built and natural environment.

These courses are designed and delivered by a team of  world-leading academics in the areas of geography and planning. While geography provides the skills to understand the nature of change and its impacts, planning translates this understanding into action to ensure a better quality of environment for present and future generations.

We provide our students with an immersive undergraduate experience aimed at developing not only an intimate knowledge of relevant subjects, but also the ability to contribute to a wide range of policy domains including social justice, health, urban futures, housing and homelessness, food justice, third world development, and economic regeneration.

Our excellent staff-student ratios ensure that you will have the opportunity to have close and regular contact with our members of staff who are dedicated to sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience with you.

"Studying Human Geography at Cardiff University allowed me to explore the intricate and fascinating relationships between people and places, through economic, social, political and cultural lenses. Living in Cardiff provided the perfect opportunity to further my studies and experience the exciting atmosphere of attending a university in a capital city."
