Why study Geography?

An Honours year in Geography focuses on developing and consolidating the knowledge and skills acquired during undergraduate study, with particular emphasis on utilising those skills in a sustained and purposeful way in conducting independent research. Apart from content knowledge, employers and professionals value both the reliability and capacity for independent work, and the skill at writing substantial reports which are demonstrated by successful completion of Honours. The main aims of the Honours year are: To enable students with an adequate background in Geographical Sciences and Planning to pursue further study in one specialist area in more depth than is possible with a pass degree. To enhance students' capacity for independent research and to acquire research skills appropriate to their area of specialization. To train to a standard sufficient for enrolment in postgraduate research degrees, and for a specialist career. Achievement of first class and IIA honours allows direct entry to a PhD program. Thesis topics in the Geography Honours program largely derive from the following main themes: Physical geography, environmental processes and management Urban and regional analysis Planning Geographic information science
