Bachelor of Arts - Geography (Direct Entry) at University of Manitoba: Tuition: $18,800.00 CAD/year (Scholarship Available)

Geography is a broad synthesizing discipline that studies humans and the Earth by focusing on the themes of place and space. Geography is therefore not an encyclopedic listing of capital cities, mountains and rivers, but rather an understanding of the causes, effects, implications, and importance of these and other features. As Geography is so broad, it is often studied as a number of separate but closely related sub-disciplines, notably physical geography and human geography, and also regional geography (Area Studies), topical geography and geographic techniques (Geomatics).

The Bachelor of Arts - Geography program is a 3-4 year degree program which allows students to study a number of different topics within the field, including:
  • Place, Populations and Mobility: Geographic Perspectives
  • Social Geography of the Environment
  • Animal Geographies
  • Food Geographies
  • Gender and the Human Environment
  • Children's Geographies and the Geographies of Young People

As Geography is such a diverse discipline, the array of possible careers is similarly broad. Often careers arise from each of the sub-disciplines augmented by expertise in regions, topics or techniques. Geography is a popular choice for students who seek further training in education, landscape architecture, and city planning. Geographic techniques, especially GIS, are highly marketable skills, and students also develop strong analytical and communications skills. Careers suited to human geographers include market research, real estate, planning, and community development. Geographers also find many suitable careers in government and non-profit agencies.
