UBC Geography Courses for 2020W Term 1

Last updated: June 26, 2020

Undergraduate Courses

All undergraduate GEOB, GEOG, URST courses in for 2020 Winter Term 1 will be completely online.

Courses will fall into one of three categories:

  • synchronous components require online attendance and participation at a regular scheduled time
  • asynchronous components will have recorded material that can be watched at a time that works for you
  • some courses will have a combination of synchronous and asynchronous components. Instructors will provide details on Canvas.

Details for all Geography courses being offered in Term 1 are posted below, and are also available in the online schedule.

If you have any concerns or require an accommodation, don’t hesitate to contact Student Services or your instructor.

This will be our first ever full term of online instruction as a department, and we are here to support you in any way that we can. We are also grateful for your kindness and patience as we all adapt.
