Apply Your Learning
Opportunities exist for senior undergraduate students to participate in fieldwork with faculty researchers in a variety of subdisciplines in Geography. These experiences range from working in the Northwest Territories studying impacts of a warming climate on permafrost to studying sand dune restoration and the ecological impacts of controlled burning at Pinery Provincial Park on the shore of Lake Huron.
Additionally, field courses are required to complete the degree. While these field courses provide outstanding opportunities for a high-impact engaged learning experience, they also provide a chance for Geography students to bond together as a community. These experiences are often the most memorable for our students and reflect our department’s commitment to hands-on research training and learning in the field.
