Environmental Geography

Earth, sky, and you

The natural world is an amazing place and humans seek to live in harmony with the earth. The environmental geography major provides you the means to understand connections between humankind and nature. These connections are developed by professors who have deep environmental knowledge, the use of advanced geography equipment and experiences that are reserved for graduate students at other universities. Become a Blugold and start connecting with nature in ways you never knew were possible.
