Geography Papers at Tauranga (2018)

Geography matters because it is about human relationships: between people and the environment, between people and other people. A clear grasp of Geography can provide insight into environmental, social and cultural problems and help us manage our resources effectively.

Geography is available as a major for the BA and the BSocSc. Geography may also be taken as a second major or as a minor, subject to academic approval of the Faculty in which the student is enrolled.

To complete Geography as a single major, students must gain 135 points from papers listed for Geography, including 105 points above 100 level, and 60 points above 200 level. Students must complete GEOGY101, GEOGY103, at least 30 points from ENVPL202, GEOGY209 or GEOGY219, and at least 30 points from GEOGY301, GEOGY309, GEOGY323, or GEOGY328.

To complete Geography as part of a double major, students must gain 120 points from papers listed for Geography, including 90 points above 100 level, and 45 points above 200 level.
