The many different careers that Carleton Geography graduates are pursuing lead us to recognize our responsibility to provide an educational experience which provides both breadth and depth. The many and varied opportunities—some quite unexpected to us— that our graduates have found to use their talents also demonstrate that it is not possible to identify any single career path that would constitute the normal experience for geography graduates. Our programs are designed in response to this reality.
The Bachelors programs provide sound FOUNDATIONS in various aspects of geography.
The B.A. Programs provide the opportunities to pursue interrelated human geography topics and to choose integrated programs of study that address physical geography and the human-natural environment interface.
The B.Sc. (Physical Geography) provides this foundation in the area of the earth surface environments, with study of climate, climatic change, earth materials, geomorphological processes, biogeography and biophysical resources.
