Courses & Programs:
In addition to this commitment, which has characterized the course offerings of the Department in the past, a second focal point in the Department’s approach to teaching has been the incorporation of as much of a field component as possible into the frameworks of many of our courses.
Proximity to a borough of 5,000 people (Lennoxville) and a Census Metropolitan Area of 166,000 people (Sherbrooke) provides much scope for practical projects. At the same time the glacial features of the surrounding Appalachian region, the history of settlement and resource development, and a significant river and drainage basin, each provide a ready field laboratory for the physical and environmental aspects of the programme.
While we offer three majors (Geography, Environmental Studies, and Environmental Science), there are several courses which are core to all degrees. Students entering the Department of Environment and Geography at Bishop’s should be prepared to understand both human and physical aspects of the environment, while also focusing on a specific orientation in either Geography, Environmental Studies or Environmental Science.
You should also be prepared to do original work in the field, ask and answer basic questions about the environment and our impact upon it. Finally, you should be prepared to become a full, active member of a small, personalized Department.
