While studying Geography, you’ll learn about people and the world through humanities, social sciences, biological and physical science disciplines. You’ll develop important skills related to the changing regional patterns of human behaviour in order to understand how these systems shape the landscape and what we might do to reshape our world.
These skills may include:
- Conducting original research to answer your own pressing questions about such matters as climate change, society and environment, urban life, global health and social inequality.
- Historical, archival, and literary research drawing upon quantitative and qualitative methods as well as mapping techniques
- Ability to critically compare and contrast information and perspectives about what are the sources of environmental and social issues and to think critically about the possible solutions
- Geo-spatial data analysis
- Design and creation of maps or graphs
- Clear and concise written communication drawing upon the fundamental importance of context and local contingency
- Persuasive public speaking and reasoning abilities integrating perspectives from the humanities, social sciences, and geographical sciences
