While B.A. and B.Sc. students are able to focus the vast majority of their courses in areas of interest to them, all Geography undergraduates are expected to have a breadth of education that encompasses scientific, social scientific (or humanities) education and technical skills. There is, of course, considerable choice in all of these areas. For details on the requirements of our B.A. and B.Sc. plans visit the Faculty of Arts & Science (Degree Plans) web site.

“The Geography Department has adopted a mixed marking method to evaluate student assignments and exams. This means that instructors will assign letter grades for all essays and essay-based exams and assignments and numeric grades for exams and assignments based on short answer questions, multiple choice, true or false, etc., where letter grades are impractical.”
