Overview

Bachelor of Arts in Geography (General)

Human Geography concentrates on the relationships societies have with the places and landscapes they inhabit. 

Geography students at Manitoba understand how human societies, cultures and economies work and how those systems are interdependent with the physical environment.

A Bachelor of Arts in Geography provides students with the opportunity to focus in one of three academic streams:

  1. Resources, Environment and Society (RS)
    Students in this stream focus on the geographies of natural and human-induced environmental processes in the recognition that current environmental change shapes relationships across all scales of society.
  2. Global Politics, Justice, and Sustainability (GPS)
    Students in this stream study geography on a global scale through an integrated assessment of the links between the economic, socio-cultural, ecological and political systems that combine to shape the world we live in.
  3. Culture, Identity and Space (CIS)
    Students in this stream study geography with an emphasis on the dynamics between identity, culture and landscapes, with a particular focus on cooperation and conflicts that produce local landscapes.
