About the department

Located in the heart of Montreal, we are home to a diverse and dynamic community of faculty, staff, undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni. Bridging the natural and social sciences, we provide a distinctive and incisive perspective on the world through our research, teaching and graduate training in three core areas: geography, urban studies and urban planning, and environmental science.

Faculty, staff, students and alumni pose for a group photo to celebrate the Department's fiftieth anniversary.
