The School of Geography & Earth Sciences is an internationally recognized centre for research, education and training. Its strengths lie in the discovery, application, and transfer of knowledge to issues and problems in the earth, environmental, and geographical sciences.
Two particular strengths in the School are the development of interdisciplinary research programs that integrate the earth and environmental sciences with human geography and the use of spatial analysis to investigate the geographical relationships between the environment and society. The School emphasizes the use of leading-edge theoretical and methodological developments in its research. Have a look at some of the projects our current graduate students are working on right now.
The School of Geography and Earth Sciences is committed to increasing the opportunities for experiential (‘hands-on’) learning by undergraduate students. Many of our undergraduate courses involve fieldwork in the local area and we have several courses that undertake field research in off-campus locations.
