Department of Geography

  • Update Image Description
  • Real World, Real Impact

    Tackle climate change. Improve disaster recovery. Combat social inequalities. Learn how to foster a just and sustainable Earth by studying its past, its present and how things interact with it.

Our physical world is changing — and so are the ways we interact with it. Geography helps answer big questions — about nature, the human environment and land use, but also about global threats such as climate change, rising sea levels, food shortages and natural disasters. In the Department of Geography, you’ll study with renowned faculty, work with modern technology and gain interdisciplinary skills to learn how to make a real-world difference and make responsible decisions about Earth’s future. 


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
