Geography

Geography is the study of spatial patterns and processes on Earth's surface and the relationship between society, populations and the environment. Our Geography programs focus on physical geography, dealing with spatial aspects of land, water and the atmosphere, as well as human geography which explores the cultural, political and economic forces behind the distribution of human activities.

As a Geography student you will spend the first two years building a foundation of knowledge in a wide spectrum of geographical themes which examine:

  • Where populations and activities are located on Earth
  • When and why physical and environmental patterns change
  • The impacts these changes have on human and physical environments
  • The responses to these impacts

In your final two years of study you may specialize in a particular area including:

  • Climate change
  • Glacial Processes
  • Soil Analysis
  • Conservation
  • Natural Hazards
  • Water Resource Management
  • Sociocultural Geography

Our courses reflect the breadth of the discipline, as well as geographical techniques and research methods including digital photogrammetry, remote sensing, soil and water testing and geographic information systems (GIS).

We also offer regional field camps and a Regional or International Field Study course that is available in your final year of study.

Lakehead Advantage

In addition to your Geography degree, we offer a concurrent Certificate in Geomatics which includes the study of cartography, air photo interpretation, digital photogrammetry and more applied mapping techniques. You will also have access to specialized equipment at the Lakehead University GeoSpatial Data Centre to support your studies. This certificate is a great addition to your degree, providing you with practical skills and an employment advantage post-graduation.

Our location in the heart of Northwestern Ontario, surrounded by Lake Superior, the boreal forest and other unique geographical features, makes Lakehead University the ideal institution to learn about Geography. We maintain great relationships with regional organizations dedicated to outdoor education and the environment, facilitating experiential learning and fieldwork opportunities in one of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes Canada has to offer.

Our International Field Study course is open to you as a third or fourth year student and is a unique opportunity to conduct structured and supervised geographical fieldwork. You will work with professors, local geographers and other experts to explore the physical attributes of your destination and gain insight into how diverse the Earth's geography really is. This course is a great opportunity to learn applied geographical methods, network within the industry and expand your knowledge of the Earth's features.

Transfer Options

It’s easy to transfer to Lakehead. Our pathway and general transfer policies are designed to help you maximize your credits from your current or previous studies at either college or university – or even both. 

There are a number of ways to transfer to Lakehead. Let us help you achieve your degree completion goals. For more information regarding specific admission requirements from college or university, check out the “Admissions Requirement” tab above and select your most recent level of study.

As a first year Geography student, whether you are pursuing the Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Environmental Science or Bachelor of Environmental Studies options, you are required to take the following cross-listed courses:

  • Geography/Environmental Studies 1170 – The Environment with Laboratory
  • Geography/Environmental Studies 1190 – Indigenous Knowledge, Science and the Environment

Your other required courses and electives will depend on which Faculty you are registered in. This will also impact your required courses as you move into the upper years of your undergraduate degree. For program listings and more information, please visit our Course Calendar.

Our Geography Field Methods and Field Studies courses supplement in-class learning with off-campus labs, field trips and weekend excursions to gain hands-on physical and human geography experience. The topics vary from year-to-year and will provide you with a professional advantage post-graduation, due to the focus on practical learning and technique development.

If you are pursuing the Honours Bachelor of Science (Geography Major) or the Honours Bachelor of Environmental Science (Geography Major) you may register to become a Professional Geoscientist once you have completed the required courses. For required course information, visit the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario (APGO) website.

We have many student-run societies and clubs that cater to virtually any interest. These organizations are integral to our sense of community on campus. They host events, fundraisers, workshops and competitions to bring people together and raise awareness for unique topics and issues. Visit our Student Clubs and Associations page for more information and a listing of Student Centres.
