The Society is expanding its university programme accreditation scheme this autumn to include UK geography Master’s programmes.
The Society already awards accreditation to high-quality undergraduate and integrated Master’s programmes, with geography degrees at over 50 UK universities accredited since 2016. Programme accreditation aims to recognise academic excellence in teaching and research, drawing upon the most up-to-date knowledge and techniques from current scholarship and professional practice.
The expansion of the scheme to include Master’s programmes will offer students and employers confidence that postgraduate geography programmes develop workplace-ready graduates, with a depth of knowledge and expertise in a particular specialist area of geography.
More information about the undergraduate scheme, including eligibility and the application process can be found here. Further details about how universities can apply for Master’s degree accreditation will be published soon, with the first application deadline for accreditation being Wednesday 30 September.
The Society has launched Professional Practice Groups, a new framework of support for professional geographers which brings together those with an interest and expertise in a thematic or sectoral area of professional geographical practice.
