The study of geography helps us develop an understanding of the processes that shape the surface of the earth and how humans use and interact with this environment. Geography endeavours to do what few sciences attempt: to create a holistic and integrated understanding of interactive complex environmental systems. Through studies in geography, you will learn about the interactions between earth, environment and society. This involves consideration of such issues as climate change, population growth, hazards and environmental management.
