If you want to learn more about how humans interact with natural and built environments, then the Geography major is for you.

The foundation of the major will include looking at spatial science, human geography and the Earth’s dynamic processes to understand how these systems have shaped human development.

You’ll look at the study of earth and water, coastal environments, globalisation and climate change. You’ll also conduct social research and geographical fieldwork to collect raw data related to your projects and develop the skills needed to pursue a career as a development compliance officer, demographer, environmental geographer or transport geographer.

Geography is a 80 unit major, specific courses can be found in the program handbook.

The Geography major within the Bachelor of Science is only available at our Newcastle (Callaghan) campus.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
