University of Durham - Department of Geography

The Department of Geography at the University of Durham is a large department of human and physical geographers conducting world-leading research that addresses pressing social and environmental challenges.

Our aim is to be a global node for geographical research – a destination and conduit for outstanding researchers from a wide range of countries and backgrounds. Our research clusters function as centres of gravity for new ideas, for experimentation, and for maintaining an environment that maximises our collective research strengths. As we move across boundaries and forge new areas of inquiry, we foster a research culture that is open, ambitious, flexible, and adventurous. This ethos is one we are purposeful about, as staff and students at all levels collaborate to advance scholarship and to share knowledge with communities and partners.
