The M.A. in Geography at University of Kansas is a thirty-hour degree that combines broad training in the field with a specialty.


About this Degree

 It also includes a thesis. The M.S. in Geography at University of Kansas expands the student's knowledge of how earth systems work and how humans interact with its components. 

The Geography Ph.D. program offers student concentrations in the following areas: cultural-regional geography of Africa, East Asia, Latin America, Russia/Eurasia, and the United States; geographic information science (including cartography and remote sensing); and physical/environmental geography. 

The department envisions master's theses to be demonstrations of a student's ability to formulate a geographic research problem, collect and analyze relevant data or appropriate literature, arrive at logical conclusions, and present the entire exercise in an acceptably professional form. Theses are more often learning experiences than substantive contributions to the field. The Ph.D. dissertation, on the other hand, is a major research effort designed to contribute significant new knowledge to geography.
