In this area of concentration, students explore the urban dimensions of many of today’s most pressing questions--relating to environmental sustainability, economic stability, and social justice. From the global to the neighbourhood scale, students participate in cutting-edge debates about urban growth and decline, the challenges faced and posed by the world’s megacities, and how globalization is reshaping urban life.
Note: Courses in the Major Program in Human Geography are divided into three main subdisciplinary concentrations: Urban Geography, Social/Cultural Geography and Environmental Geography. This program requires a total of 7.0 full credits within the broader 20 credit requirement for a UTSC degree.
