The module prepares students for their independent research dissertation through dissertation fairs, lectures and a series of tutorials focusing upon the formulation and construction of a research proposal. The module also includes three lectures which explore career opportunities for Geography graduates and skills to enhance graduate employability.

Our research focuses on environmental variability throughout the Quaternary and the effects of future climatic change. It is centred on regions especially sensitive to environmental change (tropical, cold and wildfire-prone) and also considers interactions between climate change, human disturbance and catastrophic events.
