Identify a potential supervisor

After identifying and contacting potential supervisors, remember to complete the application process.

In our program, you will work closely with an academic supervisor.  Our faculty members are active researchers whose interests span the breadth of the discipline. We have research strengths in coastal systems, geomatics, human geography, physical geography, and resources management.
