Welcome to the Department of Geography, Environment, and Planning (GEP). We offer three degrees:

  • B.A. Environmental Studies, Geography, and Planning
  • B.S. Environmental Science, Geography, and Management
  • B.A. Global Studies

The first two prepare students for careers in environmental, geospatial and planning professions. These majors emphasize:

  • Understanding human-environment conflict and collaboration
  • Building resilience with environmental systems
  • The application of geospatial and quantitative analyses to solve complex environmental and societal problems
  • Designing resource-resilient and socially just communities
  • Planning urban spaces for sustainability

Global Studies prepares students for careers that value multi-cultural communication skills and understanding global social and environmental issues. Interested students are invited to visit the Global Studies website for more information.
