Bachelor of Geography

It is a common misconception that geography is about “what is where”. Although geography does primarily deal with physical analysis of a location, it also provides explanation of why the phenomenon is there. Geography, in short, answers the question “why what is where”. Geography emphasizes the locational analysis of human activities and their relationships with the environment. These interactions of different systems are not often studied together, except within geography.

The programme offered reflects the multidisciplinary nature of Geography. Students have the opportunity to study their subject matter in a number of different areas including: Biogeography, Cultural and Historical Geography, Economic Geography, Environment and Resource Management, Geographic Information Systems, Remote Sensing, Transportation Geography, Physical Geography, Social Geography, and Urban Geography.
