Shaping the Environmental Attitude of Military Geography Students at the South African Military Academy
Smit, Hennie A. P.
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v33 n2 p225-240 May 2009
Globally there is a growing environmental awareness among all segments of society, but research on the effect of environmental education in shaping the attitude of military students is lacking. Tertiary environmental education to officers of the South African Department of Defence is seated in the Department of Military Geography at the South African Military Academy. A structured questionnaire was used in 2002 and 2005 to determine whether a difference in attitude towards environmental issues between geography and non-geography students could be found at the South African Military Academy (Stellenbosch University). The military geography students outperformed their non-geography peers in both surveys. (Contains 3 tables and 3 figures.)
