In this paper I shall attempt to describe the purposes, approaches andresults of an exercise in restructuring the undergraduate curriculum in theDepartment of Geography at Simon Fraser University. To do this I shallfirst sketch out a few of the conditions giving rise to this effort. Thecontribution is that of a case study, but because the department is one ofthe largest in Canada, and because its whole development lies within thememories of those who came to it in its earliest days, there is theopportunity to reflect on a generation of curriculum development. Byimplication, the curricular experience of this department may also serveto gauge developments in the discipline as a whole.
