The Geography and Environmental Studies program at TRU has strong teaching and research expertise in sustainable urban and rural landscapes, Japan, environmental geography, economic geography, hydrology, climatology, geomorphology and emerging geomatic technologies, including Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

Those interested in pursuing a career or further study in education, urban and regional planning, environmental consulting, policy development, environmental law, water resources research, mine reclamation, environmental assessment, and earth science, including hydrology, meteorology and geomorphology, should strongly consider completing a geography program.

Students must normally declare their geography and environmental studies major or geography minor before entering the third year of the BA program.
