Program overview

Environmental Geography is an integrated four-year degree course that provides you with training across the spectrum of the subject. We emphasise research-led and experience-based approaches to understanding the complex relationships between people and the planet. With an international context, the course is designed to give you essential skills in intellect and reasoning, field and laboratory, and geo-spatial analysis. Semesters 1-2 focuses on the building of planet Earth and the earth surface process at work in the evolution of our landscape. Alongside these core earth science modules you’ll be introduced to how people relate to the environment and the pressing human-environment issues of the 21st century, including global warming, water resources, pollution and loss of biodiversity. In Semesters 3-4, the emphasis is on Biogeography and the feeding of our hungry planet, including the essential systems of nutrient cycling for sustaining life on Earth. In Semesters 5-6, research-led teaching provides a wide range of advanced modules that include themes of sustainable environmental resources, palaeo-environments, earth surface processes and advanced geographical techniques including remote sensing and GIS. You’ll learn about Contemporary Environmental Issues and there is a choice of field courses to southern Spain or Iceland in Year 3. In your final year you’ll develop and apply your research skills through your Honours research project. You’ll be supported by your academic supervisor and can actively participate in national and international research programmes. In doing so, you can take full advantage of the wider geographical research community at the University.
