About Geography at UQ
Geography at UQ is concerned with patterns and processes of natural and built environments, and of human activities and their causes and consequences. So addressing issues of global importance such as population growth, climate change, loss of biodiversity, land degradation, and food and water security is at the forefront of our teaching and research activities.
From physical geography and human geography to spatial information science and geographic information science, the extensive span of Geography specialisms at UQ is supported by interdisciplinary and innovative research.
UQ is ranked #32 in the world for geography research*, and our graduates leave us equipped to create change in a range of sectors, including ecology, mineral and oil exploration, health, urban and regional planning, mathematics, cartography, surveying and environmental science.
