BSc In Geographical Sciences

programs_geobiogeo

Geographical Sciences  include the study of the Earth’s biosphere and its atmosphere, hydrosphere, and geosphere. The main sub-disciplines include  biogeographyclimatologyGIScience, geomorphology and hydrology, but much of what students learn in our BSc specialization is related to the interactions between these sub-disciplines. 

The Geographical Sciences  degree is a broad-based undergraduate degree that emphasizes the environmental consequences of global change. During their degree, our students conduct field-based research, including field trips in nearly all of our upper level courses, and a capstone field course conducted at the Cheakamus Center in Squamish, BC (Geographical Sciences Field Course – GEOB 309).
