Programs, Courses and University Regulations—2021-2022 (last updated Feb. 12, 2021) (disclaimer)

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) - Minor Concentration Geography (18 credits)

The Minor Concentration Geography is designed to provide students in the Faculty of Arts with an overview of basic elements of human geography at the introductory and advanced level. This Minor concentration may be expanded into the Major Concentration Geography, but not into the Major Concentration Geography (Urban Studies).

For more information, see Minor Concentration Geography (18 credits).

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) - Minor Concentration Geography (Urban Studies) (18 credits)

This concentration exposes students to various approaches to urban studies. Urban Studies is an interdisciplinary program that introduces students in the Faculty of Arts to the study of urban dynamics and the challenges facing contemporary cities around the world. Urban Studies prepares students for a variety of urban-related careers as well as for graduate study...
