Program Overview

Examine the characteristics of human and physical features on Earth and the processes that shape them. Focus on human geography and explore patterns of migration, travel behaviour, health, food systems, urban development and sustainability. Learn methods and technologies relevant to geography, including global positioning systems, spatial analyses, crewless aerial vehicles data collection, geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing.

Bachelor of Arts in Geography
In our Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Geography program, you’ll focus on the area of human geography and investigate issues of the social and natural sciences. You’ll learn to think critically about complex issues in areas such as urban planning, travel, health and food systems.

You'll discover cultural and social dimensions of how we use the world, issues of population change and mobility, and how human behaviour affects the environment. You’ll explore processes of urbanization, transportation and energy use, trends in human developments and sustainability, and patterns of migration.

The program introduces you to all the main aspects of geography in your first and second years, so that in your third and fourth years you'll have the flexibility to specialize in your area of interest and develop advanced skills in research methods and techniques.

Co-op
Co-op is a way to integrate what you are learning in the classroom with practical experience in your field of study. Build your resume, earn money, develop your network, and graduate with work experience. You can apply for admission to co-op in your first year and may be eligible for an admission interview early in your second year. As a student in this program, you will be eligible to complete paid work terms lasting 12 to 16 weeks.
