Overview

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

Programme Structure

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.
