The Department of Geography at Queen’s University offers a comprehensive graduate program in Human Geography, Earth Systems Science, and Geographic Information Systems, based on innovative research and strong collaboration between faculty and graduate students. Our graduate students engage in research of scientific and social significance. Those interested in climate change, for example, may work on the basic science of climate change, the impact of climate change on northern indigenous peoples, or the relationship between global climate change and health.
Many of our students work on questions of international significance, including development projects in Latin America or Africa, or the relationship between international migration and human rights. Our specialized Earth System Science labs include GIS and remote-sensing labs equipped with a wide range of the latest software and hardware, and facilities with the latest field equipment and laboratory instrumentation required for studying climatology, sedimentology and the biogeochemistry of environmental change, among other topics. In human geography, we provide strong support for fieldwork that engages topics of public interest from the community to the national or international scale
