Что я буду изучать?

The MSc in Geography, Urban and Environmental Studies provides students with the theoretical foundation and analytical tools they need to better understand human interventions in the environment.

The MSc program provides a stimulating intellectual environment in which students are encouraged to explore multidisciplinary perspectives. Students examine and apply various conceptual and methodological frameworks that fall within three broad environmental categories:

  • Natural or bio-physical environment
  • Human, cultural or behavioural environment
  • Urban, built or designed environment

MSc students develop their own research methodologies while working with faculty members and other graduate students on a shared thematic issue or particular scholarly focus, such as geographic information systems (GIS), sustainable communities or environmental change. These research collaborations involve reflection, discussion and critical analysis of ideas and information from pertinent scientific literature.

MSc students tailor their course and research options to accommodate their individual interests and career goals.
