University of Cambridge
The Geography summer school will introduce you one of the most exciting subjects to study at university. We depend upon an increasingly fragile physical environment, whose complex interactions with human society require sophisticated analysis and sensitive management. These issues present intellectual and practical challenges of the first importance and they are amongst the central problems of modern geography. During the summer school you will learn about some of these issues in lectures from world-leading experts, and you will gain hands-on experience in collecting and analysing the kinds of data which geographers use, including from fieldwork, satellite data and climatic records. The focus is on both physical and human geography, and may include subjects like volcanology, climate change, international development, and the future of work. You will have the opportunity to undertake local fieldwork, and will also visit one of the city's museums. Sessions will be taught by academic teaching staff, as well as graduate students. There will be lots of opportunities to ask questions about the subject.
