Faculty of Social Sciences - Geography - MA in Geography
The departmental lounge.
The MA Program in Geography at Brock offers an advanced education in geographical approaches to understanding social and human/environment relations, with emphasis on how contemporary processes affect spatial relations across a range of scales from the local to the global.
As a small program that admits fewer than ten students each year, we strive to provide an attentive, intimate and nurturing learning environment that is responsive to the intellectual needs of individual students. Students may expect small class sizes (typically four to eight students per course), lots of one-on-one attention from members of their supervisory committee, and plentiful opportunities for productive interactions with other students.
Students are trained to develop rigorous understandings of geographical processes through examination of various current theoretical perspectives and research methodologies, as well as through exposure to diverse empirical material. Students are equipped to pursue doctoral studies or careers in areas where the ability to examine and analyze the spatiality of social and human/environment relations is an asset.
