It looks like the landscape is changing for the newly named Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, formerly the Department of Geography. The Ryerson University Senate approved the name change along with two new minors, according to Ryerson Today.
Students in the Faculty of Arts will now be able to get a minor in global politics and development and journalism students can now get a minor in public relations.
According to the Senate agenda for Nov. 4, the name change will “better reflect the diverse offerings of the department and success of the new environmental urban sustainability program in the field of environment it is believed that the proposed name is more suited.”
