Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00114A

Geography is available as a specialisation within Flinders' Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Science (Honours) degrees. Flinders' science degrees are flexible and permit students to move between degrees and specialisations easily. Geography is the study of place, space and the environment. Geographers investigate the character of places, the distribution of phenomena across space, biophysical processes and features, and dynamic relationships between humans, their cultures, and environments. Geographers ask questions about why these phenomena and relationships are like they are and how they could be; how societies and environments are connected to one another; how and why they change; and how and why their characteristics vary across time and space at different scales. Geography answers questions spanning the local to the global, in the past, present and future. Geographers are motivated by issues such as social and environmental justice, and the efficient, equitable and sustainable use of resources.

Structure
