University of Hertfordshire - Geography, Environment and Agriculture

  • PDF

An understanding of the world from social, economic, political and environmental perspectives has never been more critical.
Our geography degree is aimed at students who want to develop their knowledge of our rapidly changing world by combining elements of physical and human geography.

The environmental management degree at the University of Hertfordshire – which can be combined with a degree in agriculture – is designed to develop your understanding of environmental processes, their measurement, and the techniques used to better manage the interrelationships between society and the environment.

In close collaboration with the Royal Veterinary College, Rothamsted Research and Oaklands College, we offer a unique degree in Sustainable Agriculture and Food Security with integrated work placements in research institutions and industry.

Our facilities include extensive computing and informatics resources are complemented by several well-equipped specialist laboratories, staffed by experts.

We have four dedicated laboratories for geographical and environmental science. They house field study materials and aerial photography; IT and research resources for geographical information systems (GIS) and remote sensing; equipment for testing sediments; petrological microscopes; geological maps; and a rock and fossil collection.

In spring 2017 we are opening a landmark new development, our stunning science building will bring all our science facilities under one roof. Light, airy and full of state-of-the-art equipment, it will house laboratories, cutting-edge research technology and areas for informal learning and socialising.
