Description:Geography is the study of spatial patterns and processes on Earth's surface and the relationship between society, populations and the environment. Our Geography programs focus on physical geography, dealing with spatial aspects of land, water and the atmosphere, as well as human geography which explores the cultural, political and economic forces behind the distribution of human activities.

As a Geography student you will spend the first two years building a foundation of knowledge in a wide spectrum of geographical themes which examine:

  • Where populations and activities are located on Earth
  • When and why physical and environmental patterns change
  • The impacts these changes have on human and physical environments
  • The responses to these impacts
