Overview

About the program

The Portland State University Geography 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. 

Faculty research and teaching interests encompass a wide range of subjects, approaches, and regions. Our students are similarly diverse in the research they choose as the basis for their master’s degrees.  

We teach and conduct research across a broad range of subjects, with particular strengths in the study of water, climate, the urban-rural interface, mountains, society-environment studies, and Geographic Information Science. Prospective students are encouraged to contact individual faculty to discuss their interests and research opportunities in the process of identifying a prospective advisor.
