The MSc in Geography, Urban and Environmental Studies program offered by Concordia University Montréal provides a stimulating intellectual environment in which students are encouraged to explore multidisciplinary perspectives. Students examine and apply various conceptual and methodological frameworks that fall within three broad environmental categories:
- Natural or bio-physical environment
- Human, cultural or behavioural environment
- Urban, built or designed environment
MSc students develop their own research methodologies while working with faculty members and other graduate students on a shared thematic issue or particular scholarly focus, such as geographic information systems (GIS), sustainable communities or environmental change. These research collaborations involve reflection, discussion and critical analysis of ideas and information from pertinent scientific literature.MSc students tailor their course and research options to accommodate their individual interests and career goals.
