  • GEG252M Geographical Fieldwork skills: Mallorca

    The module is concerned with identifying and defining geographical questions within the Mallorca, which serves as an example of a region with a Mediterranean climate, and applying relevant geographical skills, knowledge and techniques to these questions. The general aims are to observe, analyse and achieve an understanding of the varied geographical landscape and inherent features of Mallorca and the Mediterranean. Students taking this module will gain experience in research design, methodologies, data analysis and presentation methods, including seminars, posters and reports. Students taking this field course focus on either the physical or human geography on the region and conduct project work appropriate to their specialism. The module comprises preparatory lectures in Swansea during teaching block 2 and a one week field course, which typically runs in the last week of teaching block 2.
