Find your edge in UVic's Department of Geography.

Passionate about the future of our planet? Geography bridges the gap between the natural sciences and humanities, integrating fields like economics, ecology, political studies, urban design, resource management, human health and climatology.

We address important issues like global climate change, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, pollution, urban waste management, food security, land use conflict, rural health, ocean conservation and flooding, and much more. Our innovative classes are taught in facilities and labs designed to enhance your learning experience.

I learned a lot of great skills at UVic that I use in my job every day. Geography gave me a foundation, which I have grown over the years, and I always draw from the basics. I was fortunate to meet so many great students and professors during my time at UVic.
