This subject was previously known as Places Landscapes Regions.
This subject uses the concept of cultural landscapes, and the related concepts of place and territory, to understand and analyse the character and pressures on environments. The subject will equip students to understand, explain and apply geographical analysis to contemporary issues at different spatial scales. These issues include climate change, urbanisation, land use, human-nature relations, and ecological degradation. There is a strong emphasis on the development of technical skills using ESRI ArcGIS applications as they provide an excellent platform for exploring the layers of a landscape.
