Marine Geography

Cardiff is the birthplace of the discipline of Marine Geography in the UK. The degree scheme has been running since 1976 and is an extremely successful training route for employment in the marine and coastal sector or for future academic study.

The scheme is an exciting blend of the physical and human geography of deep sea marine and coastal environments. A major component of the course in Cardiff is that of hands on field work including coastal and offshore mapping of the marine environment in order to understand its physical and biological characteristics.
