Course Summary

Geography is one of the four subject disciplines within the School of Environmental Sciences at Liverpool and offers excellent postgradaute taught and research programmes. We aim to produce researchers with strong, transferrable research skills, who are internationally recognised in their fields and understand current environmental and academic research problems.

You will develop your research skills primarily by completing a project under supervision. The skills you will gain will typically include: data collection; manipulation of the data; data interpretation and modeling; critical analysis; literature surveys; presentation skills, through international conferences.

A doctoral degree is awarded to students that have demonstrated the ability to conceptualise, design, and implement a substantial research project that results in new knowledge, applications, or understanding in their field of study. During your research, you can expect to draw on direct clinical and observational experience to produce an original thesis of 80,000-100,000 words. You'll be part of a research group which matches your research interests. Research groups offer opportunities for cross-disciplinary research collaboration, as well as support and expertise for your research.
