Recently, the Graduate Geographical Sciences Department has been ranked the # 3 program in the country.  Our Geographical Sciences majors have a variety of skills, from data source management and statistics, to cultural interpretation and policy assessment.  They learn to use GIS, Remote Sensing, and Computer Cartography to understand and analyze both natural and human systems. Geography graduates can fulfill a wide variety of positions even if you do not engage in what is traditionally termed ‘geography.'  Our students are always searching for paid and unpaid internships, and part time positions, as well as full time post-graduate employment.
