Qualifications

For those applying to the MA, MSc, and PhD programs, it is expected that applicants hold a previous degree in Geography, although applicants from a related discipline will also be considered if the proposed research is a good fit to the supervisor and the department. For those applying to the MGIS Program, the applicant’s undergraduate degree may be from a discipline other than Geography; however, it is expected that applicants have some practical and theoretical experience with GIS, remote sensing, or spatial statistics. If you do not have previous education or employment experience with the above-mentioned topics, we suggest you take at least a fundamentals/introductory course before applying to the program. Please refer to the Graduate Studies Calendar  for further details regarding qualifications for graduate school.
