The goals of the MA Program in Geography at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are to broaden and deepen students' understanding of the spatial and environmental dimensions of the world we inhabit. Often students enter the program with an undergraduate degree in Geography, but the program is flexible enough to serve students from a diversity of educational backgrounds.
Program specialties include GIS and geovisualization, Human-Environment Relations, Cultural and Historical Geography, as well as Urban and Political Geography. The Geography program also resides within the School of Global Integrative Studies, alongside Anthropology and Global Studies, and so interdisciplinary work is welcomed and encouraged. There are two options for the degree: Option A, the thesis option, which combines original research with 30 hours of coursework; and Option B, the non-thesis option, which involves 36 hours of coursework and a minor area of emphasis in another field. Typically, a student will complete the degree in two years.
