Geographic Analysis students form a distinct community within the Faculty of Arts and Toronto Metropolitan University. There are approximately 200 students across all four years of the program.
Student success in individual courses and course groups is rewarded with some 25 program-specific student awards, in addition to Toronto Metropolitan University-wide entrance scholarships and the Dean's List recognition. Please ensure you read all emails sent by the program about awards and other opportunities such as campus jobs, internships, field trips, and international exchange programs, as well as significant dates and computer lab procedures.
For questions and concerns about a course, your instructor is the first person to contact. If the issue cannot be resolved or you do not feel comfortable speaking to the instructor, please speak with the Undergraduate Program Administrator, the Undergraduate Program Director, or the Department Chair depending on the nature of your concern.
