SPRI Review 2003: University Teaching

University Teaching

Academic members of the Institute's staff contribute regularly to undergraduate lecture courses in the Department of Geography, and also make contributions in Physics and Social Anthropology. Supervisions are provided to students in many colleges. Members of our staff are Fellows of Christ's, Churchill, Darwin, Downing, Jesus, St Catherine's, St John's, and Wolfson colleges. Our MPhil course in Polar Studies has academic strands in Physical Sciences and in Social Science and Humanities, and staff also contribute to other MPhil programmes taught in the Department of Geography. We have 20 or so doctoral students, registered to study topics that range from glacial processes to the economic development of the Canadian north and social change in Siberia. Each student is nested within one of our research groups, providing a strong and integrated research culture.
