As such it provides insights which ensure its value as a practical subject which may be applied to many fields.

Planning your Degree in Geography:
The best advice for anyone contemplating entry into any geography degree program is to get advice from a Geography Faculty Member. Plan your courses ahead of time, spread the workload to suit your own schedule, ensure that you are able to meet all the prerequisites for the courses which you intend to pursue, and take advantage of the flexibility of the course offerings. In addition to the full range of course offered in the Fall/Winter (Sept.-April) Day Sessions, some courses are offered at Night, and in the Spring/Summer Session. Ideally students should obtain faculty advice before finalizing plans thus ensuring that they are aware of the wide range of options available.
