"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."
