A blog titled "My Pursuit to Understand Society through Science (and Vice-Versa)" was recently posted on Maryland Sea Grant's site by Daniel Teodoro, a student in the Department of Geographical Sciences adviced by Dr. Christina Prell.
The Department of Geographical Science's Master's programs in Geospatial Information Sciences (GIS) and Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) held a combined poster symposium on Tuesday, May 14th in the LeFrak Hall seminar room. The symposium served as the final presentation for the Capstone class, which is the final class that Master's students complete before graduating.
This past month GEOG graduate students worked together to tackle mental and physical challenges at the UMD Rec Center's Challenge Course. Here they supported each other as they completed group tasks that focused on communication, balance, and team coordination. Students also faced personal challenges like climbing the structure seen here.
The Annual Geographical Science's Award Ceremony, organized by Erin Jacobs and Amanda Hoffman Hall, was held on May 10, 2019 to recognize the exceptional work and academic accomplishments of GEOG students, faculty, and staff alike. In the 2018-2019 academic year, the department had 5 undergraduates graduating with cum laude or higher honors, 12 dissertation defenses, and 20 unique journal publications. There were 11 departmental award winners this year, as well as several college, campus, and external award winners, all of whom were recognized at this year's ceremony. Congratulations to all award winners and nominees on your hard work and outstanding efforts!
