About

Graduate Geography study at San Diego State University has long been characterized by a close, collegial working relationship between students and faculty.

Overview

A flexible curriculum, complemented by careful advising, permits the Department to design a program tailored to the educational goals of each master’s candidate. San Diego State University now offers three Geography degrees at the Master’s level.

Degrees Offered

The Geography Masters program at San Diego State University offers both M.A. and M.S. degrees. Students wishing to specialize in Watershed Science or Geographic Information Science register for the M.S. degree. Students interested in Human and Environmental Geography may choose the M.A. degree.

The Master’s degree programs are designed to provide advanced training for students who plan to terminate their graduate studies at the Master’s level and for those who anticipate additional work leading to the doctoral degree in geography or related fields.

All Master’s students are required to complete and present a thesis that fulfills the requirements of the Graduate School, described in the Graduate Bulletin Leave geography site.

Students work closely with a Thesis Committee Chair to develop an original project for the thesis, which is evaluated and approved by a committee chosen by the student and his/her advisor. Students work independently during all aspects of the thesis, including design, data collection, analysis, and write-up, but consult regularly with their advisor and committee members.

While many students are working on research problems in the San Diego region and other locations in the U.S., the Department has provided opportunities for students to conduct research abroad including Mexico, India, South Africa, Ghana, China and Ecuador.
