Temporary Shift to Virtual Instruction

The first two weeks of the spring semester, January 19 through Friday Feb. 4, will be held virtually with limited exceptions. Students should check Canvas or email their instructors if they have any questions regarding the modality of their courses during this temporary shift. Our normal in-person course schedule will resume as planned on Monday, Feb 7.

SDSU Geography Environment, Society, and Technology

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. 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.

The Department of Geography is committed to fostering an environment of inclusion that values, honors, and respects all members of our University community. We are a community diverse in race, ethnicity, language, culture, social class, national origin, religious and political belief, age, ability, gender, gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation.
