Geography at King's
King's minor in Geography is designed to allow interested students to explore and better understand the great outdoors and involves everything from field trips across Alberta, working with maps and instruments in King's Geography lab, to using computer applications and GIS to better understand the composition of a given environment.
As a student in King's Geography program, you'll dig deeper into why certain environments are as they are, look as they do, and feel unique. More importantly, you'll attempt to understand how these natural phenomenon impact human settlements in those regions or inversely, how humans have impacted the natural landscape through their use of the land.
King's does not offer a major in Geography, but the minor equips students with plenty of employable skills and knowledge for work in geography related industries. Students interested in a minor in Geography may want to check out King's Environmental Studies program.

Geography from a Christian perspective
The Geography minor opens your eyes to the world God has given us--the world we all too often take for granted. Your appreciation for the natural wonder of the world will increase as you explore the complex processes and phenomena that lie behind even the little wonders of the world that comprise a wonderful and beautiful creation.
While the Geography minor explores the formation of the planet through a technical and scientific lens, time is set aside to appreciate and give thanks for the creation we have been given to steward.
