Department of Geography
Welcome to Geography at Durham
“Our success as a department is a measure of the open, inclusive environment we foster for students and staff. Climate change, environmental governance, landslides, natural hazards, geopolitical conflict and territorial dispute, migration, sea-level rise, energy poverty, flooding, debt, austerity and urbanisation; these are just a few of the significant challenges that are confronting us today, and few departments are better placed than Durham Geography to study them. To be a member of Durham Geography is to be welcomed by a community that wants you to succeed and creates an environment to make it happen.”
Professor Cheryl McEwan, Head of Department
