University of Dundee - Geography and Environmental Science

People, places and the planet

Geography and Environmental Science has never been more relevant to our daily lives. You will tackle challenging questions about human and physical environments, from global issues such as climate change to local issues such as urban regeneration.

Our environmental disciplines and engagement with practice is exceptionally strong, which provides exciting opportunities for you to flourish.


We work at the forefront of social science and environmental research.

‌We champion the relevance of geographical perspectives within larger scale disciplinary initiatives and projects. This includes out contributions to The Institute of Social Science Research and the Centre for Environmental Change and Human Resilience.

We promote engagement at the boundaries of our research areas, fostering collaboration with other subjects and sharing three common strategic aims for all our research:

To advance theory connecting areas of social justice, environmental change, security and resilience with social transformation and the interplay between environment and society.
To develop innovative methodological approaches to geographical research, underpinned by sound ethical practice.
To make evidence-based contributions to policy debates via close engagement, co-production and knowledge exchange with users.

The University of Dundee is a member of the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland (MASTS)
