"Geography helps us think more intelligently about ourselves, how to live and the futures that we may need to face."

-David Lambert

If your friends are tired of hearing about globalisation and climate change every Friday night, then it might be time for you to consider a university degree in human and social geography. As the name suggests, this degree focuseson the environment's relationship to society. It can be studied on its own, or in conjunction with another subject like sociology or management.

Human geography students should be prepared to write with panache on a wide range of topics. No matter whether you've been assigned a paper aboutsustainable development, or the impact of the Olympics on a host city, Marked by Teachers can support you. Study our collection of teacher-annotated social studies essays to kickstart a new paper, or to learn how to hone and edit your writing to perfection.

Students of human and social geography can go on to further study and careers in related fields like planning, anthropology or tourism, transport and travel. Those that venture farther afield might find themselves in areas such as HR, finance and accounting.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • To what extent can environmental analysis conducted by marketing managers ever be considered as objective and impartial?

    "Conclusion This essay has shown how organisational and individual level factors can influence the analysis process. From the assessment and evaluation done throughout this essay, it can be concluded that environmental analysis can never be considered objective or impartial. Although formalised techniques have been developed, environmental analysis cannot function without the "human" element of cognitive interpretation which is impossible to define in absolute terms. It seems therefore that environmental analysis would remain much more of an art than a science."

  • Evaluate The Impact Of Deforestation In Indonesia.

    "In conclusion the impact of deforestation of the tropical rainforest in Indonesia has both positive and negative effects. The main positive outcomes of the deforestation are the increased employment opportunities and incomes. This leads to reducing foreign debts and increasing the countries export earnings. There is more land available for settlement and farming to feed and house a growing population. All which lead to the economic development of Indonesia and an improved way of life for its inhabitants. However I feel that the negative effects of the deforestation far outweigh the positive. The majority of positive effects are only short-term gains, and are not sustainable in the way they are currently operated. When the forest is gone, possibly by 2005, Indonesia will lose one of its main sources of income. The cost to the environment will be enormous, not only will the trees be gone, but so will the animals, plants and birds. This process will be irreversible unless there are strict conservation laws, which are enforced, and a proper replanting and reforestation scheme."

  • It has been suggested that nuclear and/or wind power will fill the gap left by oil and gas. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of such a proposal with reference to the UK and/or China.

    "Conclusion Each country demands differ and this makes certain types of energy sources suitable and equally some sources not appropriate. China and UK is a perfect example of this as one country wants high productivity levels where as the UK want more sustainable, cheap and eco-friendly options. Each type of multi energy sourcing has its advantages and disadvantages and these need to be evaluated. Each country will have different opinions upon the suitability of different energy sources depending upon what they expect and want. However, every country needs to be prepared for the time when oil supplies begin to run out and there isn't a definite option which is right or wrong. Everyone will have their own opinions and only time will tell who was right."
