DescriptionThe PhD in Geography, Urban and Environmental Studies provides students with the theoretical foundation and analytical tools they need to better understand human interventions in the environment.

The PhD program provides a stimulating intellectual environment in which students are encouraged to explore multidisciplinary perspectives for critical analysis of human interventions in the environment. Students examine and apply various conceptual and methodological frameworks that fall within three broad environmental categories: Natural or bio-physical environment, Human, cultural or behavioural environment, and Urban, built or designed environment.

PhD students develop their own research methodologies while working with faculty members and other graduate students on a shared thematic issue or particular scholarly focus, such as climate change, sustainable resource management, sustainable urban development, social and environmental justice. These research collaborative efforts involve the presentation, discussion and critical analysis of information from relevant scientific literature.
