Overview

Geography is the study of both the physical and human environments in which we live and the interactions between people and nature. Geography provides a bridge between the social and natural sciences. It provides students with the techniques to analyse our environment and society, including Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing.

Level I Geography

In both Level I courses, an integrative approach is developed to the understanding of environmental processes and human activities that take place on the surface of the earth.

Level II Geography

In Level II Geography, students can begin to specialise in the systematic branches of the discipline, either human or physical geography, or take courses that integrate both human and physical geography or focus on geographic methods.

Level III Geography

While there is no specified assumed knowledge for Level III Geography courses, it is generally expected that students will have completed some Level II Geography before enrolling in Level III. Students who have not done this should discuss their intended enrolment with the Head of School or Geography Discipline Coordinator.
