Geography is the integrated study of people, places and environments. Students in this sub-major examine the geography of contemporary Australian cities and regions. The cutting edge interests of today’s Geographers include post-colonialism, the emergence of global information economies, indigenous issues, class and cultural disparities, population movement, sexuality and space, and the global diffusion of popular culture. This sub-major meets NSW Education Standards (NESA) content requirements for students who wish to teach Geography in NSW Secondary Schools.
