Department of Geography and Environmental Management (GEM)

As one of Canada's leading universities, the University of Waterloo gives you access to award-winning professors and exceptional learning resources. The Faculty of Environment is the largest of its kind in Canada, and the fastest growing faculty at the University of Waterloo. Environment is dedicated to inspiring action and having a positive impact locally and globally. With interdisciplinary programs and researchers, we make meaningful change happen in the classroom, and communities around the world.

The Department of Geography and Environmental Management at the University of Waterloo offers a vibrant and stimulating graduate research environment at both Masters and PhD levels. We are the most research-active unit in the Faculty of Environment and our approach to graduate studies reflects our keen interest in training high quality students in theoretical and applied aspects of geographical knowledge. Our graduate program is offered mostly through the Waterloo-Laurier Graduate Program in Geography (W-LPIG), which is a partnership between GEM and the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University. The joint program makes us one of the largest geography graduate programs in North America and provides a wide range of topics for students to explore and conduct research.
