Human Geography is a social science that studies the world, its people, communities and cultures with an emphasis on relations of space and place, combined with a focus on field work, in both teaching and research. Human Geographers find solutions to issues around climate change, economic development, environmental management, population and cultural change, and urban, rural and regional planning. You'll study conflicts and tensions, consider scientific evidence, critically analyse policy, and identify solutions with environmental sustainability and social justice in mind. As a Human Geographer you'll make essential contributions to environmental management, urban planning, and processes of social and economic change. The UOW Bachelor of Social Science (Human Geography) involves a common foundation of compulsory social science subjects in first year, followed by a major in Human Geography. You will complement your degree with a minor study area from any field in the University offering cross-faculty enrolment. You can also study electives abroad, or stay local and undertake activities to build your cross-cultural communication skills.
