Consider Geography if you are interested in an all-encompassing perspective on current global change issues. Early in your program, you will deepen your understanding of our natural environment — our climate, our water and biomes — as well as the human environment in which we live — our cities, cultures, social change and migration. Later, you will have the opportunity to focus on subjects more in line with your personal interests.

You might opt to study how humans adapt to environmental change, how cities develop and how migrants settle or you might be more interested in climate change, glaciers, floods or the thawing of our permafrost. Thanks to engaging lectures and hands-on experience-based learning, you will acquire the necessary tools and knowledge to evaluate and understand the changes shaping our world.
