The Department of Geography and Planning at Queen’s University offers a comprehensive graduate program in Human Geography, Planning, Earth System Science, and Geographic Information Science, based on innovative research, teaching excellence and strong collaboration between faculty and graduate students.
Many of our students work on questions of international significance, including development projects in Latin America or Africa, ecological change in the Arctic or the relationship between international migration and human rights. In recent years, our students have traveled to Nunavut, Japan, Great Britain, Ghana, China, Bolivia, Guatemala, the Caribbean and other locales.
There are many career opportunities for students of Geography and Planning in teaching (at all levels from primary education to university-level teaching and from technical training to highly theoretical instruction), in research (theoretical and applied and in science, social science and humanities), in business (from real estate, to GIS, to international banking), and in government (again at all levels from planning and municipal government to policy research and applications at the Provincial and Federal levels and to participation in International governance bodies and non-governmental organizations). Geographers and Planners are to be found in a wide variety of fields. They are recognized for the breadth and depth of their education and for their curiosity and observational skills.
Basic funding package (Queen’s Graduate Award and teaching assistantship): Master’s: minimum $14,000 (for 2 years).
Students may also apply for external awards including OGS, NSERC Fellowships, SSHRC Fellowships and CIHR awards, as well as internal awards. Entering graduate students who win federal government tri-council awards are automatically provided a $5,000 (Masters)
