    Major overview

    Overview

    Geographers look at the world around us and ask: What is going on? And then they ask: How can we make it better?

    This major develops your skills in conservation, environmental practices and social processes though problem focused and field-based activities.

    You can study geomorphology, climate change, coastal processes, biodiversity, palaeoecology, sustainable development and globalisation.

    Optional field subjects will take you to East Timor or China and give you first-hand experience of the landscapes, cultures and politics that define these fascinating countries.

    You can study this major under the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science

    This major is taught identically under both bachelor courses.

    Please note: The additional subjects you take under either of these bachelor degrees (that reflect your interests), may 'flavour' and/or complement this major.
