The MSc in Geography, Urban and Environmental Studies looks at how today's environment is physically, politically and economically constructed. Human activity has caused unprecedented levels of environmental change in the past few decades. Our research-active faculty members have backgrounds in the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities and have published in numerous prestigious journals. You will join a dynamic cohort of students that includes young scholars and professionals with practical work experience. The research interests of our students include human geography, GIS, urban planning, environmental science, government policy and social justice advocacy. Montreal and its surrounding areas provide rich sites for fieldwork and analysis, as well as connections to a large francophone network with its own socio-cultural and policy histories. Now more than ever, we need to collectively engage with policy-makers in order to bring about large-scale systemic reforms.
