Course content

Changes in our environment mean we are facing unprecedented societal, economic and political challenges.

With a Master of Geography, you'll become part of the new generation of workers who are tackling these challenges by bridging the gap between the social and natural sciences.

You can specialise in one of three streams – physical, human or integrated geography – and include an optional research thesis if you wish.

You’ll leave with the geography skills needed for jobs in natural resource management, research, urban planning and sustainability locally, or development and policy globally.

As a geographer, you’ll know how important it is to gain a global perspective. In addition to international fieldwork subjects, we offer the International Internship in Environment – an elective subject that gives you the unique opportunity to complete a placement with an overseas-based environmental organisation.
