Description:You will obtain a BSc with this Major if you register to this program first and combine it with another Major or Minor as part of an Honors program; if taken as part of a non-Honors program you will obtain a BA. The Major in Physical Geography and Geomatics is an interdisciplinary program that combines compulsory courses from physical geography, geomatics, computer and natural sciences. You will focus on core components of this program such as Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing which will provide you with skills that are in high demand in the work force and are essential for present day geography and other disciplines. Field work is a critical component of physical geography, thus you will be taking two mandatory field courses and will have several optional ones in Canada`s north or abroad. You will be focusing on areas such as northern environments, climate change and spatial analysis.
