What Can Geography Do for You?

A degree in Geography (Environment, Society, and Technology) provides you with the education and skills to pursue a wide range of career options (Environmental planning, GIS professionals, Urban development, etc.) Our students work in diverse fields such as fire ecology, remote sensing, GIS, watershed management, wildlife habitat, energy planning, food security, marketing, and social justice. Whether we utilize advanced geospatial technologies or work ‘on the ground’ to understand and help communities, geographers strive to solve pressing societal and environmental problems.
