Applicants to the Master's program should have an average in their last two year's of full-time study of at least B, and a recognized honours degree; successful applicants typically have an average of B+ or better. Applicants to the PhD program should have an A- average and a recognized Master's degree. Applicants whose degrees are from non-Canadian universities should see the University's International Credential Evaluation Guidelines to determine whether or not their degree(s) qualify them for admission. Alternative admissions criteria exist for special cases, for example, students whose degrees or grades do not meet the University's requirements, but who have a significant record of relevant experience.
Normally applicants should have degrees in Geography, but students who have degrees in related or pertinent disciplines also may be admitted. Contact prospective advisors to determine whether or not your educational background will be acceptable.
