Geography in Canada


Canadian Geography Courses

Studying a geography program at a Canadian university or college

As Earth grapples with the threat of global warming and climate change, Geography and Environmental Science graduates are in increased demand as we look to understand population growth, sustainability and a dwindling lack of natural resources.

Early modules will include Land, Water and the Environment, Risk and Resilience, and Living With Environmental Change. Later in the course, students can choose to focus on specific areas of study, such as Political Geography, Migrational Development, and Cartography. Because Geography is such an interdisciplinary course, it is simple to mix and match your interests with core subjects.

Fieldwork is a core part of a geography degree, and students will be expected to participate in real-world learning in Canada and overseas if they wish. This can be in data collection, urban planning and connecting society and the human landscape.

Graduate Geography Careers

Many Canadian Geography graduates progress to roles in research, planning, and business development across the public and private sectors. The skills gained on the course are transferable, so many students also go on to careers as teachers, environmental consultants, and tourism professionals.

Geography Entry Requirements

Most Geography degrees will require an A-level (or equivalent) in one of geography, biology, maths or physics.

Please note that entry requirements vary for each Canadian university.
