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.

The Ph.D. program offers opportunities for advanced research in the areas of socio-economic spaces and change, environmental governance and management, and biophysical systems and processes. There is also a collaborative Ph.D. program that is offered with International Development Studies. These programs are distinctive in that they emphasize interrelationships among biophysical and human systems. A unifying theme is the emphasis on integration and evaluation. Scales of inquiry range from the local to the global, in both developed and developing countries.
