Graduate programs in Geography emphasize human-environment geography, environmental geography, environmental geoscience, and geomatics. Graduate programs in the Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics reflect our expertise in: environmental governance and conservation social science; biophysical bystems and processes, and geomatics; and socioeconomic spaces and change. Within these areas, faculty and graduate students work together on research projects throughout Canada and the United States with some research in Southeast Asia, Africa, Oceania, and Latin America.

Our MA and MSc programs are completed through course work and research (either project or thesis), and span five semesters of full-time study. Our PhD program is completed over twelve semesters of full-time study. Geography students (MA/MSc/PhD) can also participate in a Collaborative Specialization in International Development Studies or One Health
