Geography covers a broad range of topics of contemporary relevance. Geographers help shape the future by understanding, explaining and predicting both human and physical environments. You will study the human and physical forces that shape the planet and the political, social and environmental issues that arise as a consequence of human interactions with the Earth. Geographers help understand and plan for a sustainable, socially just and resilient future. Never before has the skill set of geographers been so important at time of recognised anthropogenic climate change and predicted increases in sea-levels, bushfires and flooding.
Geography students will engage in interdisciplinary study from a strong common foundation of compulsory core human and physical geography subjects in first and second year. Students will then choose and complete a specialised stream in third year. This geography course will provide students with the skills, abilities and competencies demanded by employers and will provide a stable foundation for continuing professional development.
