UBC Geography is a world leading research department, and home to outstanding teaching practice. We welcome students from all backgrounds to join our community of learners.
As geographers, we study the natural and social processes that create and reshape our environment. Our courses examine the interconnectedness of society and the natural world from perspectives both global and local.
We take an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the natural environment, and are committed to addressing the ongoing climate crisis through our teaching, research and practice. Our goal is cutting-edge research that matters and makes a difference, intellectually and practically.
No single set of ideas or methods can ask all the important questions or provide all the appropriate answers, and together we draw on and contribute to the arts and humanities, the social sciences and the biophysical sciences. We strive for a critical and ethical approach to the world and our place within it.
