Program Information

School: University of Victoria
Faculty: Social Sciences
Degree: Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study: Geography
Description: Geography is an integrative, environmental discipline with one foot in the physical sciences and the other in the social sciences, while also drawing on relevant material from the humanities. There is a balance of social science and physical geography within the department. A basic aim is to offer a balanced program within the discipline, as well as several areas of specialization. First and second year courses are intended to provide a broad background in geography that may constitute a foundation for specialization in third and fourth years, or simply an introduction to a balanced upper year program that does not emphasize a particular field.

The Geography Co-operative Education option provides students with an opportunity to combine their academic studies with four 4-month periods of paid employment in Geography-related positions in the public, private or non-profit sectors.
