Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Geography

Overview

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 

In your final two years of study you may specialize in a particular area including: 

  • Climate change 
  • Glacial Processes 
  • Soil Analysis 
  • Conservation 
  • Natural Hazards 
  • Water Resource Management 
  • Sociocultural Geography 

Our courses reflect the breadth of the discipline, as well as geographical techniques and research methods such as digital photogrammetry, remote sensing, soil and water testing and geographic information systems (GIS). We also offer regional field camps and a Regional or International Field Study course that is available in your final year of study.
