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:

  • Geology
  • Urban and Regional Planning

We also have Master's programs in Earth Science Education, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Historic Preservation, and Urban and Regional Planning.
