Abstract

This paper examines the teaching of the history and philosophy of geography in British undergraduate courses. It suggests that this teaching may be undergoing change related to: (1) changes in the nature of the history and philosophy of geography; (2) changes in teaching methods; (3) changes in school education; (4) changes in the organisation of undergraduate education; and (5) student reactions to and learning of the history and philosophy of geography. The paper examines the significance of these factors using the results of a questionnaire survey.
