Welcome to the Department of Geography
The Department of Geography offers BA, MA and PhD degrees. We offer comprehensive and relevant curricula at all levels and have major research specialties in social and environmental justice, and climatology and hazards. We are especially interested in these relative to the urban environment and their impact on human health and well-being. While preparing our students with a strong theoretical base, our approach is very applied, utilizing state-of-the art geospatial technologies to understand these complex human-environment interactions.
