Program Information

School: Queen’s University
Faculty: Faculty of Arts and Science
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: Geography
Description: Geography bridges the natural sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. Students in Geography approach problems from ecological and spatial perspectives. An ecological perspective is useful for investigating many environmental and resource management questions that focus upon relationships between humans and the natural environment. Alternatively a spatial perspective is concerned with understanding locational choices and locational relationships underlying human (social, cultural, historical, economic or political) behaviour at geographic scales ranging from the local to the global. The Geography and Planning Department offers two ways to boost your resume–a fast-track professional master’s degree in urban and regional planning and a certificate in Geographic Information Science. The fast-track program combines a BAH or BSCH with a Master’s degree by extending your studies by only 15 months instead of 24 months.
