Additional information

The Geography, Environment and Society sequence exposes students to the major environmental issues and challenges our world faces today. It provides a methodology for analysis and interpretation and allows students to critically evaluate management strategies. There is an emphasis on project-based research and learning as the sequence progresses, with associated development of skills in data collection (in the field and from secondary sources), collation and analysis using industry-standard equipment and methods, including GIS and Remote Sensing. Field-based learning is a crucial aspect of studying Geography at ACU, with opportunities for exciting field trips within Australia and overseas. These skills may then be applied to a range of applied professional situations.
