Modern Geography is much more than ‘capes and bays’ and naming capital cities around the world. Rather, it is characterised by the complex interactions between global scale change (e.g. sea level rise, human migration patterns) and more regional and local scale change (flash floods, urban inequalities). Geography sits at the interface of the natural and social sciences in a world – the ‘Anthropocene’ - where humans increasingly modify their environment and where the environment, to differing degrees across different social groups and cultures, impacts and changes lives and livelihoods. Geography graduates are typically both literate and numerate and go on to careers in a variety of sectors, including industry and commerce, planning, social work, environmental management, conservation, and the media.
