Human Geography

Human Geography, within the School of Social Sciences in the Faculty of Arts draws on the long-standing background of this discipline at Monash, which has always been a vibrant centre of undergraduate and graduate teaching and research, attracting highly motivated students and academics.

Since its inception 50 years ago, it has produced some of Australia’s leading researchers and policy makers in climate and environmental change, land and water management, urban and regional economic development, and political ecology and international development. Our staff and students are engaged in teaching, research, analysis and actions that promote sustainable use and management of natural resources, landscapes and built environments across Australia and the world.
