人类学 studies human diversity in the recent past and present, teaching us to recognise the remarkable array of circumstances in which human beings live their lives and make meaning from them.
In doing so anthropology invites deeper analysis of behaviour that we might think we understand but that has complexities that only reveal themselves to careful investigation. We seek to understand the full context of people’s actions and all that they impact.
Last, anthropology is more than just a catalogue of diversity. 人类学研究自己. It also means stepping back and seeing ourselves the way others might see us – a shift in perspective foundational to the discipline.
Our 地理科学与规划 discipline is a leading centre of geographical and planning education and research. 我们考虑社交性, 环境, 文化, economic and political elements interplay to shape the world around us.
我们的研究 focuses on the complex relationships between human and 环境 systems in cities and regions. While our research is theoretically innovative and has made important contributions to global debates in geography and urban planning scholarship, we are equally dedicated to addressing “real world” problems and working towards a more just and sustainable future.
Our courses in geography and planning (accredited by the Planning Institute of Australia) provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to address some of the world’s biggest challenges.
