Plan requirements

If you entered Geography and Environmental Management (GEM) or Geomatics plan before September, you have the choice of following the requirements outlined in the current calendar, or the requirements of an earlier calendar.

If you wish to follow the requirements described here, rather than an earlier version, then you must make this request on a Plan Modification or Internal/Faculty Transfer Application form (PDF).

Note for GEM and Geomatics students: If you follow the 2014-15 calendar, then you must complete ENVS 278 as part of your plan requirements, even if you do not do a specialization.

Note for Aviation students: If you are in any year of an Aviation plan in September 2014, you will meet the requirements of the 2014-15 calendar.

Specializations, options, diplomas, and minors

As a Department of Geography and Environmental Management student, you can focus your interests in one of four specializations:

  • Climate Change
  • Development and Environment
  • Earth Systems Science
  • Geomatics

You can further pursue your interests by doing an option, diploma or minor as part of your degree.

Modifying your plan

Students who intend to add a minor, option, or second major (e.g., joint honours or concurrent degree) to their academic studies must receive approval from the Director or Advisor for the second major, minor and/or option, as well as the Undergraduate Officer for their major plan of study.

A Plan Modification or Internal/Faculty Transfer Application form (PDF) must be completed, signed, and submitted to Miljana Kovacevic (EV1-120) for GEM plan or Heather Dorken (EV1-115) for Geomatics, Geography and Aviation, and 2+2 plans prior to the start of year three.
