If your interest in geography is mainly in the areas of society, economy and environment and you have no desire to pursue further studies in physical geography, then this broadly based programme should be ideal. Please be aware that not all options are available every year.
Please read the following important information before referring to full details of course options found in the Programme Regulations.
The programme regulations available are for the current academic session and may be subject to change before the beginning of the next academic year. For more information about course availability in the next academic session, please contact the relevant academic department. The School reserves the right at all times to withdraw, suspend or alter particular courses and syllabuses, and to alter the level of fees. Courses are on occasion capped (limited to a maximum number of students) or subject to entry conditions requiring the approval of the course convenor. The School cannot guarantee that places on specific courses will be available.
You study two core courses, Environment, Economy and Society and Methods in Spatial and Social Analysis, and choose between either Environmental Change: Past, Present and Future or Contemporary Europe. You may select a fourth course from a range of other approved options available at LSE.
Second and third years
The second year core courses provide a thorough grounding in the key environmental, economic, social and political aspects of the discipline and form the basis for a range of more specialist third year options. In particular, Research Techniques includes a field trip to New York and helps to prepare you for undertaking the Independent Research Project in the third year. Your fourth course may be a geography and environment option, or a course from another department at LSE. In the third year you complete your Independent Research Project and take three further geography and environment options.
