2014 Geography Graduates

Welcome to Geography

The Millersville University Department of Geography offers a comprehensive program of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography. Graduates of the program have completed a liberal arts education that serves as the foundation for further academic study in disciplines addressing geographic, environmental, and international issues or for professional fields such as planning, public policy, law, and environmental management. Graduates of the program acquire technical and communication skills that are suitable for direct entry employment positions.

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 trains students to develop geographic skills in geographic information systems, remote sensing, quantitative methods, and cartographic design. The global studies concentration prepares students to address international and regional geographic issues, emphasizing people, communities, and culture.

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.

Contact Information

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.
