GEOG 4007 - Honours Geography, Env & Population Common Course

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2016

The course information on this page is being finalised for 2016. Please check again before classes commence.

There is a wide range of concepts and theoretical frameworks in geography and environmental studies. This course will provide each Honours student with a thorough grounding in the broad philosophical foundations of key concepts in human and physical geography, such as place, scale, landscape, systems, nature, development, globalisation and risk. The theoretical debates and real life application of these concepts are critically examined in this course by investigating environment and development issues, such climate change, and water and food security. Staff members of the Department of Geography, Environment and Population contribute their expertise to this course. The in-depth knowledge of the key concepts in geography, environment and population is important and helpful for the design and conduct of research projects, such as the Honours thesis.
