Durham University

Department of Geography


Durham Geography is a large department with an active research culture, whose ethos is designed to allow researchers at all stages of their careers - from undergraduates to academic staff - to deliver research excellence in both human and physical geography. Research activity is organised into seven clusters that act as 'ideas factories', and as centres of gravity for existing areas of research expertise for which we are internationally recognised. Researchers in geography also contribute significantly to Durham University interdisciplinary research institutes and direct cross-department research centres (see Research Centres & Units links right).
