Our teaching and research programs encompass the disciplinary traditions of Environmental Science, Geology, Physical Geography and Human Geography. From our strong and multidisciplinary base we are developing strategic initiatives in the Archaeological Sciences and in Cultural environmental research. Our staff undertake research in many parts of Australia and at a number of international locations. Students are exposed to this research from the first year of their degree, and have increasing opportunities to participate in it as they develop their skills and knowledge in later years.
