Welcome to Macquarie University

The Department of Environment and Geography was disestablished at the end of 2014 and no longer operates.  Two new Departments have evolved from it: the new Department of Environmental Sciences in the Faculty of Science and Engineering, and the new Department of Geography and Planning in the Faculty of Arts.  Both new Departments started on 1 January 2015.  Both new Departments remain interdisciplinary, and collaboration of members of the two new Departments continues in research and learning and teaching, particularly in the areas of environmental management and planning.
