Degree Overview

The study of geography focuses on the location of things in both physical and human environments. The discipline seeks to understand the characteristics of places, the processes that produced those characteristics, and the interactions among places. The geography major is a well-rounded, flexible, liberal arts degree and is good preparation for graduate work in geography or related disciplines. Students may select courses within the geography major to design a more applied program focusing on geographic techniques (such as Geographic Information Systems) and career-oriented courses; such an applied focus prepares students for careers in both the public and private sector of the economy.  A minor may be earned by selecting 18 hours from any geography courses.

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Students will demonstrate the capacity to question, examine, evaluate, and respond to arguments in the field of geography.
  2. Students will demonstrate the capacity to evaluate varied geographic sources and to write critically.
  3. Students will demonstrate the capacity to produce, analyze, interpret, and evaluate quantitative evidence.
  4. Students will demonstrate concern for their community, country, and world through participation in activities that make them a better place.

 

Accelerated B.A. Geography and Sustainability Studies to M.S. Applied Geographic Information Systems


Note:  Please refer to Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Degree Program for complete information concerning the Accelerated Degree Program.  Refer to the current Graduate Catalog for master’s degree requirements.

IMPORTANT:

  • Students admitted to the Accelerated B.A. Geography and Sustainability Studies to M.S. Applied Geographic Information Systems degree program will complete up to 12 hours of graduate level credit to apply toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees.
  • Students may not receive credit toward both the undergraduate and the paired graduate-level course. A student completing an undergraduate course and the paired graduate-level course will only receive credit for one course toward the bachelor’s degree.
  • A minimum grade of C is required for all 5000 level graduate courses.
  • Students who do not follow the approved degree plan may become ineligible to continue in the accelerated degree program. 
  • Prior to completing the undergraduate degree, if the undergraduate GPA, graduate GPA and/or overall GPA fall below a 3.00, the student becomes ineligible to continue in the ADP.
  • Students may withdraw from an approved accelerated degree pathway.  Graduate credit hours completed prior to the student withdrawing or becoming ineligible to continue in the ADP apply toward the undergraduate degree only.
