Durham University Geographical Society (DUGS) is one of the oldest and largest academic societies within Durham University. With the majority of geography students being members, along with many other students studying much wider degree courses, the society provides an effective link between students from different colleges and departments.
The society aims to provide members with all the information they need about studying geography at Durham and careers after university whilst providing a wide variety of exclusive social and academic events throughout the year. This year we are aiming to become bigger and better than ever before offering a large number of guest lectures, careers talks, fresher, Christmas and summer socials as well as the greatly anticipated Geography Ball in Epiphany term. Feel free to browse the website for more information on the benefits of DUGS and details on how to join us can be found under the About Us section.
To join our Facebook page please click here or search for "Durham University Geographical Society" in the search box. Alternatively, for updates regarding the society follow our newly created account on Twitter by clicking here. Links to both of these, as well as the RSS feed for news and information regarding the Department of Geography, are also found at the top of each page.
