Geography pathways

Use this study pathways tool to help choose subjects aligned with your interests or to identify pathways suited to the subjects you have already taken.

We have designed these pathways to help you identify geography subjects aligned with your interests or by the subjects you've already taken. Some of these pathways can sit within either the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science. Pathways are not formal degrees or qualifications, but rather are recommended groupings of similar or related subjects.

Use these pathways to choose subjects of interest, or to build a particular skillset for your preferred career path. When enrolling, you must ensure that degree requirements are met.

When using the tool, you can explore pathways in two ways: by keywords or by subjects. When you choose keywords or subjects, the associated pathways are highlighted. We invite you to play with the tool and see where your geographical interests might take you.
