Welcome, Current Students!

Professor Scott Mitchell

Chair of the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies

Hello, DGES students!  Whether you’re joining us this fall or returning to Carleton, welcome to the 2020-21 academic year.  What a year!  We’ve all been through interesting but stressful times in recent months, but I’m very pleased that so many of you have elected to begin or continue their studies.  DGES faculty, teaching assistants and staff have been hard at work preparing for the new experience of online delivery of all of our courses, and while being forced into this situation is not ideal, I can confidently say that while I write this in late August, I have confidence that an excellent program is ready for you.  I am just as positive that there will be many hurdles in the coming months, though, and part of our response to that is to create this page of supporting materials for you.  We will keep revisiting this and adding new resources as they become available and relevant – so please check back regularly, and feel free to make suggestions about other resources you find useful.

We don’t want to JUST provide information about how to adapt to necessary switch to online learning, though!  Whether you’re a new student wanting to learn more about the department, or a returning student interested in reminders of events from last year, you may be interested in our 2020 DGES annual newsletter.

Best wishes,

Scott Mitchell, Chair, DGES
