Geography is largely focused on how and why physical and cultural phenomena not only differ from location to location but how they interact, develop and change over time. Geographic Information Science (GIScience) is the science of capturing, representing, processing and analysing geographic information.

The degree prepares work-ready graduates capable of acquiring data using GPS, processing remote sensing imagery and solving location-allocation problems. Combining Geography and GIScience into a double degree provides the modern geographer with new opportunities to link powerful spatial analytical tools to help solve highly topical problem areas such as food security, health geography and natural resource sustainability. GIScience is only available with Geography within this Science/Arts double degree.
