Geographers examine interactions between humans and their environment. Over the past few hundred years, humans have modified urban and natural systems at a staggering rate. As the human population continues to increase and the demand for space becomes more competitive, graduates of Geography will have a sound basis for understanding these pressing issues.
Physical geography includes the sub-disciplines of geomorphology, climatology, biogeography and hydrology, and focuses on understanding how processes in the natural environment function.
Our Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Geography offers you the opportunity to study with professors who are leading researchers in their fields, and acquire a broad range of skills and expertise in physical geography and geospatial analysis.
The BSc in Geography program prepares you to seek professional registration as an environmental geoscientist (PGeo). Professional registration allows you to practice geoscience in the province of Ontario. The work involves analysis of different Earth systems and geoscientific situations in natural settings, so geoscientists need to gather on-site data and make direct field observations. Worksite locations can be remote and physically challenging. As a BSc in Geography graduate you will be able to confidently apply to seek professional registration.
If you are interested in mapping and technology, our BSc in Geography and Geomatics degree might be for you. For this degree, you’ll focus on Geographic Information Systems (GIS), cartography, spatial analysis and programming. If you are interested in biology, we offer a combined BSc in Environmental Science.
