Welcome to the Department of Geography and Anthropology. Our Department offers a diverse range of programs including Anthropology, Geography, Geographic Information Science, Environmental Studies, and Native American Studies. Our faculty conduct research on space and culture in our community and around the globe. They are passionate about sharing their research with undergraduates and invite students to join their projects as junior researchers. Through independent studies, internships, community-projects, study abroad, and student-led clubs, undergraduates in our programs acquire relevant skills and graduate to jobs that they love. They also gain an understanding of the complexity of our physical and cultural worlds today.
