Geography & Urban Studies

The specialized honours program in Geography & Urban Studies, affiliated with the Urban Studies program, invites students to combine an interdisciplinary exploration of urban life, its qualities and its discontents with the study of social geography — the discipline that has most closely examined the nature of city lives and city places. You may orient your studies in a number of ways: toward the modern city, toward urban development in a global context, toward the history and comparative study of cities or toward planning and environmental issues.
Why choose this program?
  • Our program stresses firsthand fieldwork of the social and spatial fabrics of cities.

  • Learn from a group of dynamic professors who care about individual student success.
