Geography is a strongly fieldwork-oriented discipline that extends across the social and natural sciences. This is an area of growing interest as we meet the challenges arising from significant changes in our physical environment and the social, economic and political implications of those changes. The newly-established Master of Geography provides comprehensive grounding across all major sub-disciplines of contemporary geographic study; physical, human and integrated.

Students specialise in one of these three streams, and will choose either a coursework-only option of study or one of two coursework-plus-thesis options (comprising of a 50 point research project or a 100 point research project). You will also have access to numerous field-based subjects, allowing you to experience and build the field skills that are essential to the study of applied geography.

The Master of Geography is replacing the Master of Science (Geography) as of 2017.

Australian Fee Places

If you are not eligible to receive a CSP, you will automatically be considered for an AF place if you meet course entry requirements. AF places are not subsidised but you may be eligible for assistance with the FEE-HELP loan scheme. If this course is relevant to your current employment, you may be able to claim fees as a work-related tax deduction.

Course fees are calculated as if a student undertakes one year of full-time study. This is called 1 x EFTSL (Equivalent Full Time Study Load). If course duration is less than one year, or the student studies less than a full-time study load, fees are adjusted accordingly.

The indicative total course fee is based on typical subject enrolments and does not take into account any advanced standing for prior studies.

Fees are reviewed annually by the University and vary depending on subjects within the course.
