Major

students

Students may complete a Major in Geography as part of either a BA or BSc program.

Students who want to declare a Major in Geography should meet with the Head of the Department. Once registered to do a Major in Geography, students will be assigned a faculty advisor. The role of faculty advisor is to help students in planning their academic program and to guide them through difficulties they may have.

It is preferable that students declare their major at an early stage in their studies and that they take courses following the appropriate sequence: by following the levels and respecting the prerequisites.
