Geography at University by Gordon Clark

Book Description

'This is an essential easy-to-use guide to geography. It is unique in providing not only passive advice but also offering activity based guidance to both potential and current geography undergraduates. Geography at University is wide ranging in its approach offering assistance to all; from those who need help with their dissertation to those writing their curriculum vitae. It is an all encompassing text which offers a fresh and original outlook on geography at degree level' - Lorraine Craig, Royal Geographical Society (with Institute of British Geographers) Geography at University will show students how to do better at university when studying for their degree in geography. It explains how university - and geography at university - differs from the subject at school. At university, students are taught new topics in different ways and will be tested on different abilities - the ability to understand, to explain and to apply knowledge; rather than just on the knowledge itself. This means that students need to learn the subject in new ways: Geography at University shows them exactly how to do that.Being at university is a phase between school and career, this book will show students how university geography builds on school geography and gives them skills employers will be looking for when appointing graduates. Geography at University reviews each of the main methods by which students are taught geography - lectures, tutorial, fieldwork, practicals and projects - and explains what tutors will be trying to do during these sessions so that students can gain the most from teaching. Geography at University explains what tutors are looking for when assessing students works through their essays, examinations, oral presentations anddissertations. There is more to getting a degree than just studying geography. There is much that students can do through a gap year or taking paid or voluntary work to give them an edge when applying for jobs after graduation, and Geography at University explains how they can make the most of these opportunities as well.
