About us

"Welcome to Exeter Geography. We are a vibrant community that provides a friendly but ultimately challenging environment in which to study and work.

Geography is at the centre of issues of relevance today and in the future. It offers explanations for, and promotes understanding of, the relationships between events and their impact both globally and locally. It is about appreciating the complexity of these events and relationships, drawing on historical experiences, and preparing for and shaping the future. It is within this context that we aim to pursue world-class research and deliver programmes of the highest quality which tackle and examine critical global issues of the 21st century."

Professor Nicola Thomas (Head of Exeter Geography)
