Our research and teaching on environment, sustainability, cities, coastal studies, climate change and similar themes means we are addressing national priorities and issues of importance to people in Sydney, throughout Australia and around the world. As a student in the School of Geosciences you will learn how to analyse problems, work out solutions, and communicate these clearly to others. Your studies will reward you with valuable skills to launch a professional career often involving international travel, out-of-doors work in exotic locations, and the ability to contribute to better environmental futures.
