An undergraduate dissertation is your opportunity to engage with geographical research, first-hand. But completing a student project can be a stressful and complex process. Your Human Geography Dissertation breaks the task down into three helpful stages:
- Designing: Deciding on your approach, your topic and your research question, and ensuring your project is feasible
- Doing: Situating your research and selecting the best methods for your dissertation project
- Delivering: Dealing with data and writing up your findings
With information and task boxes, soundbites offering student insight and guidance, and links to online materials, this book offers a complete and accessible overview of the key skills needed to prepare, research, and write a successful human geography dissertation.

Kim Peters has written a much needed book that will be of great value to Geography students undertaking what is often the most challenging part of their degree, the dissertation. As a Geography lecturer I have often wished that a book such as this existed. Your Human Geography Dissertation goes way beyond a standard examination of the pros and cons of different research methods, covering a range of topics from the identification of dissertation subjects and the development of research questions through gathering data and writing up. It is a readable and highly accessible text full of helpful detail, practical advice and useful examples. Thank you Kim!
