Geography Field Studies
Geography students experience high-impact learning a number of ways, including a two-week intensive field studies course led by faculty through mountain, foothill, and prairie environments in Western Canada.
The course introduces students to geographical field observation as they examine the human-environment interactions and adaptations in Southern Alberta and British Columbia.
