Geography 3000y --Field Methods & Practices
(aka "Field Camp")
This full year, half-course involves a one-week field excursion to a location
away from the Western University campus. Participation in this course is mandatory for students in year three in most of the Honors Specialization modules offered in the Geography department, check the How to Register page to see the exact list. For all the other modules the course is optional.
All field camps stress the importance of preparation prior to departure, the practice of geography in the field, and the completion of one or more assignments in the field and after returning to Western.
Field Camp expenses are generously subsidized by the Faculty of Social Science Students' Council. We are grateful for their continuing support for these valuable (and memorable) excursions.
