Accreditation awarded to BSc GeographyWednesday 21 June 2017
The Council of the Royal Geographical Society has awarded professional accreditation to Liverpool Hope University’s BSc Geography degree.
Under the Society’s accreditation scheme, recognition is given to undergraduate programmes that deliver key geographical knowledge, understanding, skills and approaches, and the development of professional and personal attributes of geography graduates.
Head of Geography and Environmental Science Professor David Chester said: “This is not only good news, but also reflects considerable effort by Senior Lecturer Paul Rooney and University Accreditations Officer Ursula Boote, who worked very hard to achieve this outcome.”
This is the third professional accreditation the Geography and Environmental Science department has secured for its courses this academic year.
In October, Hope’s BSc Environmental Science and MSc Ecology and Environmental Science courses were accredited by the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environment Management (CIEEM).
