New theories and technologies energize geography, and the discipline has changed enormously over the past few decades. Geography careers run the gamut: remote sensing, geographic information systems, environmental sciences, resource management, conservation, urban planning, sustainability, medical geography. Our graduates work with new and complex challenges as they emerge—in the environment, the community and in the world around us./ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS Prerequisite Minimum standing BA, BSc B+; geography honours or major Applicants must also meet the general admission requirements for the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

What is co-op?
Co-operative education (co-op) is a learning strategy that lets you:
- alternate your academic studies with paid, relevant work experience in your field of study
- enrich your academic studies by drawing on practical, real-world experience from your work terms
- develop competencies to excel in the workplace
- potentially pursue work terms related to your graduate research or project
Can you do co-op?
Graduate co-op may be available to students who are pursuing thesis and non-thesis (or professional) degrees. Participation is optional, and admission is determined after consultation with your graduate adviser and department. Contact the co-op program in your degree area for details, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Co-op is not open to one-year graduate degrees, graduate certificates and diplomas, and non-degree graduate students.
