Graduate Programs in Geography emphasize human-environment geography, environmental geoscience, and geomatics, with considerable strength in areas of environmental management and governance, biophysical systems and processes, and socioeconomic spaces and change. A unifying theme is integration and investigations at local to global scales in developed and developing nations. We provide advanced training for students to carry out high quality original research in their chosen areas and to be competitive in an increasingly diverse job market. We do so through coursework, one-on-one research training by acclaimed faculty, and self-directed learning. Our graduate students demonstrate outstanding academic achievement through winning major awards, producing publications, and securing employment.
