Study Focus Areas

UVic's Geography program offers four study focus areas: physical geography, human geography, environmental geography, and geomatics. We have defined these categories to give students a guide to course selections, especially for the last two years of study. We recommend selecting some upper level courses you wish to take, and working backwards from there to create your program plan.
