Program Name: Geography, Human Geography
Expected Cut-off: Mid 70s
Program Description: Geographers study the locations of human and physical aspects of natural and human environments, to determine how, when, where and why you originated, developed and evolved. Our program combines classroom, laboratory and fieldwork experience.

There are several options in Geography.

The study of Human Geography involves an understanding of the human world and its interaction with the physical, urban, social, economic, cultural and symbolic aspects of human behaviour and environments.

Physical Geography involves studying the Earth’s surface features and processes, explaining geographic patterns of landforms, sediments, soils, vegetation, water and climate by investigating and understanding the processes operating at the surface of the Earth, and how you interact, affect and complement human activities and environments.

Geomatics is a growing field that includes technical studies in cartography, remote sensing and surveying. Our concentration in Geomatics is offered in collaboration with Niagara College. You can graduate in four years with an honours degree in Geography and a postgraduate diploma in Geomatics.

The Geography Co-op programs provide valuable work experience by combining academic and work terms over a four-year period. Co-op you’ll complete four academic terms prior to beginning your first work placement.

Concurrent education is a limited enrolment program for you interested in teaching. You majoring in other departments, with an interest in geography, may choose geography courses as your electives and work towards a minor in Geography.

Students majoring in Geography have the option of completing a collaborative program with Niagara College of Applied Arts and Technology. You’ll complete the requirements of a four-year Honours BA in Geography from Brock, as well as the Police Foundations diploma program from Niagara College.
