UNBC Geography is a vibrant community of human and physical geographers. In addition to teaching undergraduate courses, faculty members supervise graduate students in a range of graduate programs.

The faculty regularly offers students the opportunity to participate in field schools that are held in intriguing locations in Canada and around the world, including Guatemala, Peru, South Africa, and Death Valley in the southeastern United States.

Students learn in a wide range of settings using different methods including lectures and seminars, dry labs, wet labs, and data capture in the field

Field schools enable students to apply field methods in both physical and human geography toward an integrated study of local and global environments.
