Geography is a broad subject with two main themes. Human geography focuses on social processes and people, and physical geography is concerned with patterns and processes in the natural environment.
Human geographers are social scientists like sociologists, social anthropologists, economists, regional planners, and psychologists. Physical geographers are scientists like geologists, and those who study Earth’s land, water and atmosphere. Students tend to choose to study within one theme.
Geography study can lead to qualifications in arts and in science. Geography is a major and minor subject in the Bachelor of Arts and can also be taken in a certificate or diploma programme. At postgraduate level, Honours, Masters and Doctorate qualifications are available.
Physical Geography is located in the Institute of Natural Resources in the College of Sciences. Read more
