Sara Epp's Testimonial
B.A. (Honours) Geography, Brock University
"When I began my undergraduate degree at Brock I had planned to attend law school after gaining a degree in a subject that interested me. I was unaware that majoring in geography would have such a large impact on my life and influence my future academic aspirations. As a rural Niagara resident, studying rural geography and community development as they relate to the Niagara Region during my undergrad motivated me to continue studying geography and join the MA program. For my thesis I plan to explore regional and municipal planning policies and their implications for rural community development. Of particular interest is the ways in which the Niagara Region’s growth policies deal with competing visions for use of rural land, as it pertains to residential development and agricultural production."
