TWU stands apart as one of only two Christian universities in North America that offers a major in geography. Here, students learn the study of people, places, and earth processes from a unique perspective, while gaining the hands-on experience required to address local, national, and global concerns.
The geography program encourages students to engage with major social, economic and environmental challenges. A broad range of courses—including ones on resource management, air and water pollution, low-income housing, population growth, and climate change—helps to expand students’ horizons and prepare them to create meaningful change in the world.
Beyond the classroom, students put their learning into practice in TWU’s on-campus Ecosystem Study Area and a 70+ acre property on Salt Spring Island dedicated to ecological preservation and student research.
