Overview

Faculty research and teaching programs include local, regional, and international interests in hydrology, water resources, climate science, Geographic Information Science, biogeography, sustainable development, urban environments, land use analysis, cultural studies, and K-12 geographic education.

As one of the founding units of the School of the Environment, the department has developed links with the departments of Geology and Environmental Science and Management and the USGS Water Resources Unit on campus. Regional geography courses are offered cooperatively with the International Studies Program. Human geography courses are part of the courses of study for the Certificate in Sustainability, the Minor in Sustainability, the International Studies Major and the Environmental Studies Major.

Students may pursue either the Master of Arts (M.A.) or the Master of Science (M.S.) to prepare for careers in the private or public sector, as a step to a Ph.D. program, or for personal enrichment. The program requirements are few and flexible, and students work closely with their advisors to design a course of study tailored to their interests. Many incoming graduate students enter the program with a degree in a field other than geography; we welcome applications from students regardless of major.
