Graduates are expected to have acquired autonomy in their ability to teach, conduct research and prepare scholarly publications. They are also expected to have developed self-learning abilities and to apply critical and innovative thinking to problem-solving. This objective is achieved by providing a broad knowledge of theoretical and practical geography through courses and seminars, instructional experience through teaching assistantships and giving lectures, as well as basic research training and technical expertise through independent projects and research assistantships.
