The Queen’s Department of Geography has been ranked 41st in the World for Geography in the 2013 QS World University Rankings. These rankings place Queen’s among the world’s elite universities in several academic disciplines.
Geography is an exciting field that spans the sciences, the social sciences
and the humanities and has something to offer every kind of imagination.
In earth systems science we study natural processes, their interactions,
and both naturally and human-generated environmental issues. In the social
sciences we study a variety of social problems, with a special focus on
the uneven distribution of resources and services at scales from the local
to the global. In humanities research we explore how human beings have
made, and continue to make, the places (physical, social and metaphorical)
in which they live. In all these areas Queen’s Geography has scholars
and teachers of international repute who are dedicated to making a dynamic
and innovative research and teaching environment and a warm and supportive
interpersonal environment for our students and faculty.
