Master of Geography student, Thomas Savige, looks back at his study journey from BSc to Masters.
I originally wanted to study physics, but was also drawn to the Earth sciences - learning how the environment we experience was created, has been shaped, and will continue to change into the future. Through the Melbourne Model I was able to do both at the same time. I initially took a number of Geology subjects before moving into Geography for a more 'hands on' approach to current environmental systems.
Studying has meant the combination of opportunities to study a wide variety of landscapes with enthusiastic students, while learning from driven staff who love their field or research and pass that passion on to their students. I've had the opportunity to do field work in a wide variety of settings throughout my degree: across long stretches of the Victorian coast, inland Victoria, the Flinders Ranges, the Nullarbor, and Northern Tasmania.
