Graduate research

Geography Master's student Jordan Eamer talks about his research on ice sheets, changing sea levels, and dramatic floods to understand how people migrated down the coast over the past 15,000 years.

Graduate publications

An indication of student and program quality is the large number of papers published by our graduate students in peer-reviewed journals.

Although publications from Doctoral dissertations are not unusual, a significant number of our Master's students, in collaboration with their advisors, undertake research of sufficient calibre to be published in peer-reviewed journals, some of which are top-tier international venues.
