Geography, Environment and Agriculture

Environment Students at BayfordburyAn 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 inter-relationships between society and the environment.

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