Introduction

The Department of Geography and the Environment provides students with a well-rounded education that bridges the social and natural sciences, and provides geotechnical training. Students take courses in human, environmental and physical geography. In addition, we offer applied courses in geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing and urban planning. The Geography degree prepares students for different career paths, including education, environmental analysis, government, planning, and resource management and conservation. We prepare students for critical challenges of the 21st century by promoting global understanding and environmental stewardship.
