Geography and Geology

The Department of Geography and Geology has a long history and an exciting future.

We have five programs to service those interested in the Geo-based arts and sciences:

  • Earth Science
  • Geography
  • Geology
  • Urban and Regional Planning
  • Secondary teacher certifications in Earth Science and Geography

We also have Master's programs in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Historic Preservation and Urban and Regional Planning. The GIS and Historic Preservation programs now cater to undergraduates pursuing a minor; along with various minors in our other programs as well.

Faculty are dedicated to giving their students the best education and experiences possible. Come to Eastern to see what we have to offer!
