The UWI STA Geography Department is a leader in the field of Geographical Education, providing undergraduate programmes of the highest quality in the region. These programmes emphasize the provision of knowledge, while providing valuable hands- on experience to our valued students. Our programmes have been developed in keeping with the standards set for the teaching of Geography by The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (UK), particularly with respect to benchmarking learning outcomes, level of knowledge and understanding, student skills, and methods of assessment.
This programme provides high quality research training in multi-disciplinary geographical research methods, to facilitate candidates to conduct research in areas of regional importance and international significance, and to produce graduates capable of developing and leading their own research projects, either in academia or industry. The programme allows for study in areas of Geography staff interests and expertise. The MPhil/PhD programme aims to improve the research potential of both the individual candidate and that of the Department. Candidates admitted to the MPhil/PhD programme in Geography will join a rapidly expanding and dynamic, interdisciplinary research community. The programme is used in the investigation of regional problems of geographic nature to the benefit of the region.
