The Millersville University Department of Geography offers a comprehensive program of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography. Students may focus their study in geography by choosing from one of three concentrations: environmental studies, geospatial applications, and global studies. The environmental studies concentration encourages students to pursue study in traditional resource-based issues of air, water, energy and land resources. The geospatial applications concentration enables students to develop geographic skills in GIS, remote sensing, quantitative methods, and cartographic design. The global studies concentration is the broadest in scope, and students study geopolitcal and regional geographic issues.
The department has six faculty and approximately 80 majors and 20 minors. Upper-division class size is typically fewer than 20 students, so students can develop a close relationship with professors.
The department's main office is McComsey Hall, Room 220. Lori Read, Department Secretary, is available to assist you, Monday-Friday, 9:30AM-11:45AM, during the academic year.
