We aim to foster a spirit of inquiry about the geography of the world around us through our teaching and research.

We strive for excellence in research, and part of our vision for the future is the aim to be recognized for excellence in pursuing integrated research about our environment.

We are engaged in a variety of research activities in many branches of the discipline, typically in collaboration with others. 

Our teaching and research focuses on five major areas: 

Globalization, Economy & Resources

Sustainable Communities & Regions

Climate & Environmental Change

Society, Knowledge & Values

Health & Well-being
