This unit is offered on campus in Hobart and via a mix of web-based and on-campus delivery in Launceston and Cradle Coast.
This foundation unit in Geography and Environmental Studies develops your knowledge of the ways in which people turn space into place, how different value positions filter our relationship with nature, and how social and environmental factors shape ecological patterns. Workshops, some of which are in the field, will provide you with tools to investigate spatial phenomena, describe ecosystems, and map and relate environmental and social patterns. This unit is useful for a wide variety of occupations and professions, as well as for everyday life. Students wishing to do second and third year units in social science or physical science units in Geography and Environmental Studies should also take KGA171 Global Geographies of Change.
