B.A. in Geography with emphasis in Geographic Information Science (GIS)
University of Northern Colorado
Earliest start date
In the wide-open landscape of rural Colorado, a group of students gathers data about food deserts. The topic is part of their class focus on food and place. They are studying how humans impact the landscape and how the landscape shapes people’s lives. These students can tell you that geography is far more than examining maps and locations.
As a geography major at UNC, you’ll use scientific exploration to study issues like climate change, urbanization, industrial development, population growth and sustainability, migration, landscape transformation, and political cooperation. You’ll have access to a state-of-the-art GIS lab and work side-by-side with expert Geography faculty who support and engage you through research and internship opportunities. And when you graduate, you’ll have skills based on field experience, research, and knowledge gained from an immersion in the real-world nature of geography.
