About this course

Geography is a broad-ranging subject. As a social science it is concerned with the spatial patterns of human activity and the character of regions and places. It is a subject which is well placed to explore the complex relationships between society and the natural environment as well as the social and economic problems of human land use and settlement. It therefore complements other Programs such as: City Studies, Environmental Science, Political Science, Sociology, Anthropology, Economics for Management Studies and International Development Studies. Geography courses are also listed as options in several University of Toronto Scarborough Programs including City Studies, Economics, Enivromental Studies, Health Studies, International Development Studies, Public Policy and Women's and Gender Studies.
