Geography is a very broad subject that spans a number of different disciplines. While much of the knowledge and skills acquired on the course are interchangeable, many modules have required me to develop a variety of new and unique skills. Studying such a diverse variety of modules has required a lot of effort but has been a very rewarding and enjoyable experience.
