Overview

Master of Arts - Geography

The Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics conducts research and teaching on the interrelationships between human society and the physical world. 

Students are introduced to the full spectrum of subfields, including human and physical geography, environmental studies, and geomatics. Specific departmental strengths include polar environments, urban geography, climate change, and GIS and remote sensing.

In addition to its undergraduate programs, the department offers thesis-based two-year Master of Arts (MA) and Master of Science (MSc) programs, as well as a course-based interdisciplinary one-year Master concentration in The Anthropocene (MSc), and a PhD in Geography. 

Through the MA and MSc programs, students can also participate in the collaborative program in Science, Society and Policy. The programs are governed by the general regulations in effect for graduate studies.
