SDSU's Undergraduate Program currently has about 135 majors. Undergraduates may fulfill their degree requirements in accordance with one of six tracks. These tracks include: the general program, either of two environmental tracks, a physical geography track, a methods of geographical analysis track, or an urban and regional analysis track.

The Master's Program has been tremendously successful and enjoys an excellent reputation across the country. Approximate 60 M.A. and M.S. students are in residence (many of which are employed by the department as graduate assistants or graduate teaching assistants). Over a recent 3-year period, SDSU turned out one quarter of all the geography master's graduates in the state of California while maintaining very high academic standards. Students work closely with faculty advisors on their theses, and career prospects for master's graduates have been excellent.

SDSU's Joint Doctoral Program with the University of California at Santa Barbara has been highly successful at recruiting and educating outstanding students from across the world. To date, the department has conferred 30 doctoral degrees, with several more expected this year.

The Interdisciplinary Program in Urban Studies is now administered by the Department of Geography.

The Certificate in Geographic Information Science is a joint program of the Department of Geography and the Department of Computer Science.
