In recent years, our students have traveled to Nunavut, Japan, Great Britain, Ghana, China, Bolivia, Guatemala, the Caribbean and other locales.

Career paths – employment opportunities

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.
