These projects are the work of GEOG 2260 Applied Human Geography students from Winter 2021. This course is a qualitative research methods course where students were tasked with utilizing a number of research techniques to define and discuss the following prompt: “What is _____ Geography?” This group project was done entirely online and in addition to exploring the subdisciplines in depth, students were required to learn new communication tools.
For many of our geography students, a highlight of their degree is their participation in the annual field trip, which has been running since 1969. Below you can find photos from most of these trips.
Though we strive to keep the costs of participation manageable, for some students the field course is too great a cost. We are therefore grateful for a generous gift from Shauneen and Michael Bruder, graduates of the College of Social Science in 1980, which provides $3500 annually to support student participation in the field course.
