Program overview

You would normally apply for a Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree if you wish to study other science courses as well as your Geography courses during your degree, if you intend to specialise in Physical Geography, and/or if you wish to emphasise your science training beyond university. However, your Geography degree provides great flexibility. After all, one of the great things about Geography is that it offers the widest possible curriculum, from studies of intercultural relationships, to deep understanding of the earth system.
