¿Qué aprenderé?

The Department of Geography offers a comprehensive liberal arts major, leading to a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree, and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) concentrations in environmental geography and in urban planning. Our programs are designed to prepare students for graduate study in geography or for employment in fields actively seeking geographers.

Geography majors wishing to work with the environment may take environmental geography courses as electives, possibly with a minor in environmental science and a geography internship. Those wishing to study people, cultures, and environments may wish to take regional or cultural geography courses as electives, possibly alongside study abroad or a minor in a foreign language. The concentration in urban planning is for students who wish to undertake graduate study in planning or to obtain employment in that field. A Geographic Information System (GIS) sequence is offered in addition to courses in Cartography and Remote Sensing.

In addition, the department cooperates in various programs, such as Environmental Studies; Asian Studies; Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies; and Latin American & Caribbean Studies. Students in the Early Childhood & Childhood Education (B-6) and Early Childhood Studies (non-certification) programs may select a geography major, while those in the Adolescence Education (7-12) program may select geography courses as part of the social studies major.

For those majoring in other fields, minors in Geography and in Urban Planning are available.

To complement the academic program, the department offers an internship at several public and private agencies in the region, such as the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and Mohonk Preserve. One semester long, the internship offers students the opportunity to gain practical, on-site experience at a planning, development, or environmental protection agency.
