We explore environment, place, and space. We ask questions such as: How much climate change are we causing and how quickly? What sorts of attachments to home do people form and what happens when these are disrupted by migration? How is Ireland, and its regions, affected by economic globalisation?

  • Through Geography, you will get to the heart of contemporary issues such as climate and environmental change, geopolitics, the transformation of modern societies and cultures, global health and social inequality, and how cities are evolving.
  • Geography education at Maynooth includes field trips, both in Ireland and overseas.
  • Students can choose 15 or 30 credits of Geography in first year and progress into a Single Major degree from second year.
  • In your third year, you may opt for an industry placement module (subject to availability) to experience what it’s like to work with an organisation outside the University.
  • You will learn to think critically, analysing how and why our world changes. Geography paves the way for active citizenship and lifelong learning.
  • Our students develop a special way of thinking ‘spatially’, with space and place at the forefront of their analysis, and learn a range of skills which appeal to employers.
  • Our students are taught by international experts in the fields of environment, place and space.
