Geographical Techniques Courses: Archaeology 3300, Geography 3235, Geography 3700, Geography 3710, Geography 3720, Geography 3730, Geography 3740, Geography 3750, and Geography 3780.
Note: Additional requirements for the Concentration in Geographical Science should be taken in place of `Electives' in Years 3 and 4 as appropriate.
Students considering entry to a graduate program in Geography are advised to complete Geography 4900. They should also complete a 4000-level Independent Study course in Geography in their final year.
Students completing the Bachelor of Arts and Science (BASc.) will complete a second major in addition to Geography. The second major, and other BASc. requirements, may replace GLER courses and Electives in this sample sequence.
