Why study Environmental Geography?

Explore the relationships between people and the landscape, whether it’s your own backyard or a vast region on the other side of the planet.  As an Environmental Geography major, you’ll take courses in geography, geology and biology, and enjoy the flexibility to complement your studies in another field of interest.

Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll acquire the analytical skills to assess the impact of human activity on natural landforms and cycles. During the program you’ll also:

  • Study the causes and consequences of environmental change
  • Learn to gather and interpret statistical data
  • Acquire technical knowledge of computerized mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
  • Learn to develop effective and efficient policies for environmental management

After graduation, your knowledge and technical skills will prepare you for a career in environmental planning, design and restoration, environmental assessment or resource management.
