Diverse views of the world
Geographers examine the patterns and processes of human and environmental landscapes. Our discipline is both a science and an art, combining a broad, spatial perspective with knowledge and views from other fields of study.
In the classroom
Many students discover Geography at Camosun by taking one of our introductory courses: GEOG 100 Environment and Sustainability, GEOG 102 Human Geography or GEOG 111 Natural Hazards. Altogether, Camosun offers 20 different courses that allow you to pursue studies in five different geography categories: human, environmental, regional, physical and applied techniques.
An education in geography can take you places you might not expect! Here are some of the many career paths that have been pursued by geographers:
- Geography teaching
- Geographic information systems
- Environmental consulting
- Natural resource management
- Environmental monitoring
- Urban planning
- Census data collection and analysis
- Map making
Part-time or full-time studies
You can take Geography courses within one of our 2-year programs or as individual courses on a part-time basis. If you plan to take Geography courses on their own, you will select University Transfer as your program option when you apply online to Camosun.
"In an increasingly globalised world the importance of appreciating variation and difference is something geographers are passionate about." Steve Wyn Williams
