The Department of Geography and Environmental Studies (G&ES) offers a 36-credit hour major in Geography and a 42-credit hour major in Environmental Studies. Both geography and environmental studies are broad fields of study bridging the human and natural environments. [+]

The Department of Geography and Environmental Studies (G&ES) offers a 36-credit hour major in Geography and a 42-credit hour major in Environmental Studies. Both geography and environmental studies are broad fields of study bridging the human and natural environments. Major in Geography Geography is a practical discipline which studies the distribution and movement of people, things and ideas across the complex surface of Earth. It offers great intellectual breadth by way of integrating knowledge from many disciplines in the social and natural sciences. At the same time it focuses sharply on the spatial dimension, leaving geographers best suited to answer complex questions such as why things are where they are, where they are likely to be in the future, and where they might best be located. These skills are applied at any scale to any issue where space and location play a role. For example, one might determine where to best locate a business or how to predict or manage trade. One might study neighborhood dynamics in a chang­ing economy, or plan for urban growth and change. One might study natural hazards, resource use and distribution, or climate change; or perhaps migration, suburbanization, tourism. When location is relevant, geography plays a pivotal role. Geography is the study of space and location; it is a practical discipline which incorporates knowledge from the natural and social sciences to address problems of a spatial dimension. Geographers describe spatial patterns – where things are, where they are not, and why they are distributed that... [-]

BA Environmental Studies and Geography

Bishop's University
Campus Full time 3 years September 2018 Canada Sherbrooke

Environmental Studies and Geography, with its major focus on human-environment interaction, is a broad discipline which analyzes the distribution and interrelationships of physical and human phenomena on the earth. [+]

Environmental Studies and Geography, with its major focus on human-environment interaction, is a broad discipline which analyzes the distribution and interrelationships of physical and human phenomena on the earth. It combines subject matter and methodologies from both the natural and social sciences. Since its founding in 1961, the academic mission of our department has been to provide to undergraduate students a solid grounding in the study of people and the environment. This focus has been consistent with Bishop’s University’s overall commitment to undergraduate programmes providing a liberal arts and science education. The Department of Environmental Studies and Geography strives toward the following: Interactive learning and community involvement Low student to faculty ratio and small class sizes Student-faculty collaborative research High-profile faculty research Student preparation for graduate programs Why study ESG at Bishop’s? In addition to this commitment, which has characterized the course offerings of the Department in the past, a second focal point in the Department’s approach to teaching has been the incorporation of as much of a field component as possible into the frameworks of many of our courses. Proximity to a borough of 5,000 people (Lennoxville) and a Census Metropolitan Area of 130,000 people (Sherbrooke) provides much scope for practical projects. At the same time the glacial features of the surrounding Appalachian region, the history of settlement and resource development, and a significant river and drainage basin, each provide a ready field laboratory for the physical and environmental aspects of the programme. Thus, students entering the Department of... [-]
