Majoring in Geography provides a grounding in:
- Environmental change – from land degradation to environmental management.
- Environmental policy – including global and national environmental agendas, shortfalls, and policy implementation.
- Earth systems – from climate studies and meteorology, to earth surface processes, to earth’s biodiversity and
- Human society – looking at economic development, climate and society, cultural geography and urban dynamics.
Geographical Information Systems and Remote Sensing – foundation courses in GIS and Remote Sensing are carried out in our GIS labs during the second and third years of study.
Geography is an excellent general subject for undergraduates majoring in other subjects in either the Faculty of Science or the Faculty of Humanities.
