¿Qué aprenderé?

The Master’s Degree Program enables students to gain greater familiarity with the richness and rigor of advanced study in the discipline of Geography. Students use coursework to develop familiarity with the discipline and their chosen subfield(s), and use an original research project to develop skills in data gathering and analysis. Students may write either a thesis or two high-quality research papers as part of their degree requirements. These original works are expected to meet high standards for research design and data analysis.
