About the Program
Exploring and analyzing the complex interconnections between people and their natural and built environments is the focus of geographic inquiry. Ryerson's Geographic Analysis program is uniquely positioned to prepare students for the professional workplace using state-of-the-art technology in geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing.
Through a combination of classroom lectures, geotechnology training, field studies, and a mandatory work placement, students develop the ability to provide real-world solutions in areas including business location, real-estate development, urban poverty, public health, crime prevention, as well as environment and pollution.
The program offers four optional concentrations in location analysis, urban analysis, environmental analysis, and geotechnologies.
