The Master of Arts in Geography is an opportunity for students to deepen their knowledge and contribution to the social and spatial systems that structure our world. Human geography brings together a wide variety of perspectives that other disciplines treat in isolation. The MA program allows for students to develop practical and theoretical innovations that provide for a full and rigorous picture of the world that we live in.

The MA is structured around a student-driven research project that can have practical and academic contributions. Course work in the program is flexible and tailored to the student’s interests.

Research interests

Our areas of research build upon the streams and focus areas for the Human Geography Program, which are:

Resources Environment and Society – Research within this area provides a critical analysis of the production and use of resources within varying scales.

Global Politics, Justice and Sustainability – Research within this area focuses on the link between economic, socio-cultural, ecological and political systems, with a strong emphasis on social justice and sustainability.

Culture, Identity and Space – Research within this field examines the relationship between identity, culture and the landscape, especially within experience-driven landscapes, like those associated with recreation and tourism.

Program details

Expected duration: 2 years
