Master of Arts in Geography


Program Description

The Program offers students an advanced education in geographical approaches to understanding social and human/environment relations.  The program emphasizes spatial relations across a range of scales from the local to the global. Students are trained to develop sophisticated and rigorous understandings of geographical processes, through an examination of various current theoretical perspectives and research methodologies, as well as exposure to diverse empirical material. Graduates of this program are equipped to pursue doctoral studies or careers in areas where the ability to examine and analyze space in relation to social, human and environmental relations is an asset.

As a small program, we strive to provide an attentive, intimate and nurturing learning environment that is responsive to the intellectual needs of individual students. Students may expect small class sizes (typically four to eight students per course), lots of one-on-one attention from members of their supervisory committee, and plentiful opportunities for productive formal and informal interactions with other students.

Highlights

  • A faculty with very diverse backgrounds and research interests
  • A curriculum that stresses critical approaches to geography
  • The size of the program is small, which allows for quality interactions with supervisors and other faculty.
