Geography and Geospatial Sciences students begin their studies with basic introductory courses in physical and human geography and geospatial science. These are followed by courses that demonstrate the power of geography to integrate human-environment interactions in space, such as transforming environmental conflicts; land use planning for sustainable communities; and an introductory field course. At the upper-division level, students take required physical geography (climatology or biogeography) and geospatial science (GIS, cartography, and remote sensing). Then they choose among a set of electives in geospatial science; international studies; water resources; and hazards, resources, and planning. The final year includes an advanced field course; an internship, research project, or undergraduate thesis; and a capstone course that examines the social, political, and ethical dimensions of geospatial science.
