In the Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics, we contribute to the body of knowledge in our diverse fields through high-quality teaching and excellence in research. We prepare specialized teachers and researchers to meet the demands of the geographic profession for various public, private and community agencies. Our graduate students undertake meaningful research on a diverse range of topics redefining geography, environment and geomatics, and leading them to a wide variety of careers. From Canada’s northernmost glaciers to Toronto’s immigration, from remote sensing of shallow reefs to water security for Northern Peoples, from the study of past environmental change to the future effects of today’s forest fires our graduates are studying all over the map for the benefit of our planet’s environments and societies. The Department has laboratories for GIS, physical geography, paleoclimatology and climatology, remote sensing and geomatics of the environment. Awards and financial support are available to full-time graduate students.
