Geography at Hull The Department of Geography is based in the attractive Cohen Building. We have a wide range of well-equipped teaching facilities, including lecture theatres and seminar rooms, with new laboratories and networked computer areas. The University Map Room, housed within the same building, provides excellent facilities for private study and a resources service for geography students, while the University’s main library, just a couple of minutes’ walk from the department, houses an extensive collection of geography books and periodicals along with those of allied subjects. Geography has been taught at Hull since the University’s foundation in 1928. Our 24 academic staﬀ have a wide range of specialist interests and expertise, which enables us to provide a variety of courses and more than 40 diﬀerent modules across the breadth of human and physical geography.
Attentive, friendly and supportive Our annual intake is around 130 students. This means that our staﬀ–student ratio is 1:16, which is very favourable by national standards and of obvious beneﬁt to our small-group teaching. We are very friendly and supportive towards our students. We are a top-20 department for our teaching and learning (National Student Survey, 2009) with extensive teaching, library and support facilities, oﬀering a friendly and supportive environment. Our excellent return in the 2009 National Student Survey also showed that 96% of BA graduates and 92% of BSc graduates were satisﬁed with their course.
A wealth of options The modularised degree structure provides training in core areas of the subject while oﬀering you a wide range of choice across physical and human geography; but whatever you decide to choose, our aim is the same – to provide a stimulating and supportive environment in which you can enhance your understanding of this fascinating subject, and equip you with both academic and practical skills that will be valued by potential employers. Hull’s Department of Geography is recognised for the international standard of its research. This expertise is captured to great eﬀect in our teaching programmes, where staﬀ are always ready to share their enthusiastic interest in their own specialist areas.
