Queen’s Geography Ranked 41st in the World!

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.
