Field Courses and Excursions
COVID and Field Courses
How will COVID affect your field courses in 2021? At the moment it is too early to say but we are hopeful that we will be able to proceed with field courses next fall. More information will be made available later this year.
Whether it’s a short excursion in Ottawa’s backyard, or a multi-day field course in Montreal, the Geogian Bay, the Yukon, Iceland or Zanzibar, our department provides affordable opportunities for you to step out of the classroom and see your studies come to life. Travel with us and get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study in destinations few have ever been.
Students enrolled in a major or honours bachelor's degree must take two field courses. The first of these, GEG/ENV 2918 is mandatory for all our students. For their second field course, geography students can choose amongst any of our national courses (GEG4920, GEG4921, GEG4001) or international courses (GEG4000, GEG4001, GEG4100, GEG4128). Students in environmental studies must, for their part, take ENV4910. All students may, if they wish, take several of these field courses.
