Transnational Geography

Learning locally and globally

Explore what the world has to offer! The transnational geography major incorporates cultures and environments across all borders of the globe. The department of Geography and Anthropology also has professors who travel across nations and bring their international perspectives to you. But don’t let our professors have all the fun! UW-Eau Claire has a study abroad program that offers over ten countries to choose from. This degree illustrates how geography impacts nations across the world and transforms you into a truly global citizen.
