Program Overview

The complex challenges facing the world today - including social and spatial inequalities, new migration flows, climate change and pollution - have led society to question the interactions between humans and the environment, demanding answers and new ways of working that human geography can provide.

Studying the ways in which people interact in economic, political, social, and spatial contexts can help us identify issues and challenges, and understand what causes them. Only then, can we develop solutions to improve long-term human wellbeing and protect the planet as a whole, distributing and managing our natural resources more equitably and sustainably.

Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the MA in Human Geography and Sustainability Research not only draws on social sciences more generally, but also brings together Keele’s internationally recognised expertise across the two distinct disciplines of human geography and sustainability.

Generic and subject-specific research training prepares you to consider why and how humans behave, interact with, shape and affect their surroundings; studying our many diverse environments, habitats and resources (both natural and man-made).

Hands-on practical research equips you with valuable experience and skills to identify innovative solutions to broader societal problems. Such measures could include the development of new approaches for securing migrant settlement and integration, tackling rural deprivation, addressing health inequalities and / or generating new forms of sustainable energy.
