(ii) explore how decision-making and action to address these challenges and opportunities can be imagined and enacted at multiple scales and across institutions and communities.

Higher Degree Research in Geography offers multiple opportunities to build new knowledge and understandings of the complex relations between people, society and environments.

 HDR students are an integral part of the School and of our research. Find out more about our current students and potential supervisors here.
