Welcome to Geography & Environmental Planning

The Geography and Environmental Planning Programmes are within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS). The Programmes are strong in both theory and applied aspects of geography and environmental planning. They seek to provide appropriate academic conditions both for staff and students who are interested in ideas, and for those whose interests are more practical.

Those interested in a more 'traditional' mix of geography, containing both physical geography as well as human geography, are very welcome. The Programmes have close teaching and research involvement with physical geographers in the nearby School of Science and Engineering (especially the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences) and in the International Global Change Institute. And also maintains strong links with the New Zealand Geographical Society.
