UCL Geography is an established international leader in geographical research. Its goal is to undertake research of the highest quality, strengthening the contribution of geography to interdisciplinary understanding in the environmental and social sciences. The department is distinctive in the scale and diversity of its research, the international scope of its expertise, the collaborative links it sustains in the UK and abroad and the policy orientation of much of its research. We are committed to theoretically informed empirical research, directed towards the better understanding of major social and environmental issues. Doctoral students are at the centre of the department’s research culture and play a prominent role in our seminar series. All our graduate students have access to excellent laboratories and state-of-the art computing facilities.
