Undergraduate Programs

A geography degree will give you a grasp of the world.

Our undergraduate programs in geography and environmental planning provide our students with a skills-based education while teaching them about the world. We have faculty with regional expertise that covers the globe from Africa to Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Areas of Focus

In addition to emphasizing global knowledge, our areas of focus include:

  • Geospatial technology, including geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, aerial photography, and cartography
  • Human geography, including urban, population, and social geography, human security, and resource management
  • Physical geography, including meteorology, climatology, hydrology, biogeography, and geomorphology

Our students learn statistics, problem-solving skills, how to make maps, and how to interpret satellite imagery, to name just a few specific skills. Our interdisciplinary approach prepares students to be expert geographers and global citizens.

State of the Art Facilities

Our facilities provide students with everything they need to excel in the geographic field. We have multiple GIS labs equipped with essential software, including ArcGIS, IDRISI Selva, SPSS, Excel, and Google Earth.
