Geography degree programs at Trent are delivered through the Trent School of Environment.
From migration to urbanization, to the relationship between gender and space, BA students focus their studies on human geography, particularly how people encounter and shape their environments. BSc students take a deeper look into the human and natural forces that shape the physical world, studying topics like hydrology, topography, earth materials and climate.
"What I like most about geography is the diversity of the discipline, from subjects like geology to urban planning, geography influences everything. What sets geography at Trent apart from other universities is a field work component associated with almost every class. Everywhere you look in Peterborough and the Kawarthas, there is evidence of physical processes and this area is part of a rural urban fringe. You couldn't find a better place to learn geography than Trent."
