About the School

In addition to strong subject affiliations and interests, we address questions at the interface of society, culture and environment from local to global scales. In both our teaching and our research, we work within and across subject and disciplinary groupings. From strong disciplinary foundations, we seek to develop inter- and transdisciplinary perspectives, so as to shape questions and solutions which are relevant to communities, stakeholders, policymakers and academics alike.
