Asian Geographies

Asian Geographies offers a structured exchange opportunity between the University of Toronto and National University of Singapore (NUS). This program allows students to study geographic themes through the lens of development and change in Asia. They complete half of this minor program while at National University of Singapore (NUS), selecting from courses there that locate geographic questions in a local or regional context.

Minor program only, offered jointly with the National University of Singapore

This Type 3 minor program represents a unique opportunity to study geography in a different cultural environment. For more information, contact the Undergraduate Office and the Centre for International Experience (CIE, www.cie.utoronto.ca). Students are advised to contact the U of T Geography Department in advance of going abroad to discuss course selection at NUS.  For the full list of course descriptions, please see the Faculty of Arts & Science Calendar.
