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

in a global context, toward the history
and comparative study of cities or toward
planning and environmental issues.
