Welcome to the BSM Geography department. Geography is an ambitious and unique subject that aims to learn about the past in order to understand the present in order to plan for the future. It is a discipline which uniquely links with the arts and sciences in order for students to place into context the world in which they live.
‘Geography is a living, breathing subject, constantly adapting itself to change. It is dynamic and relevant. For me geography is a great adventure with a purpose,’ - Michael Palin.
