Geography has been taught at Queen Mary since 1894, making us one of the longest established Schools of Geography in the UK. Today, we are one of the leading centres for geographical scholarship – join us and work alongside some of the very best geographical and environmental science researchers in the world.
Excellence in teaching
Our research excellence feeds directly into our masters teaching and the training of our postgraduate students. This ensures you will be guided by internationally recognised experts whose writings and public engagements have significantly shaped intellectual debates and understanding of contemporary issues. These range from the challenges of climate change and river management to the spaces of home, city and identity; from struggles for social justice and migrant rights to the physical processes that shape the Earth’s surface and its ecosystems.
Set in the heart of one of London’s most vibrant and diverse areas, the School is ideally placed for studying the capital’s people, places, cultures and environment, as well as being a global hub for geographical expertise. We take research beyond the university and work with a wide range of partners, organisations and communities to improve the wellbeing of people and the environment. We are also a friendly and welcoming School with staff who are not only passionate about their subjects but are committed to sharing their knowledge to ensure that you graduate with all the tools you need to progress in your career.
Our masters students come from all around the world and with diverse backgrounds. They are integral to the School’s research culture and contribute significantly to our record of research excellence. We play host to a range of distinguished international visitors. We also have strong ties with museums, institutions, policymakers, international organisations and environmental agencies, among many others. The School was awarded Best Academic Centre in 2008 by Citizens UK, an alliance
of civil society organisations.
