The Geography and Environmental Studies programme at the Stellenbosch University focuses on the study and resolution of human-environmental problems, environmental disasters and urban or tourism phenomena from a spatial perspective.


Key facts

The Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at the Stellenbosch University underwent major expansion during 2009 through two initiatives: a university Overarching Strategic Plan (OSP) focused on GIT and the incorporation of new and externally funded Centre for Urban and Regional Innovation and Statistical Exploration (CRUISE). These developments were augmented in 2011 with the incorporation of the Disaster Mitigation for Sustainable Livelihoods Programme (DiMP), the forerunner for RADAR (Research Alliance for Disaster and Risk Reduction). Geography and Environmental Studies continues its tradition of academic excellence in its newly expanded format.
