Overview

THE COURSE STRUCTURE BELOW ONLY APPLIES TO RE-ENROLLING STUDENTS WHO COMMENCED THEIR STUDIES PRIOR TO 2016

The Environmental Geographies major focuses on the relationship between human activities and the natural and built environment, humanity's changing relationship with the natural environment, and with the natural 'resources' that we both need and use. Contemporary political disputes, for example, have much to do with long-held concerns over energy supplies, water, land and food.

Intended learning outcomes

By the end of a three year Bachelor of Environments degree with an Environmental Geographies major, students will have developed a base of knowledge in natural systems, political economy, and cultural politics, providing students with the skills and conceptual frameworks needed to understand complex processes shaping the world around us.
