Geography examines social and environmental processes, with a particular focus on space and place, critical theory, practical application, analysis and intervention. For more than 80 years, the Department of Geography at Syracuse University has been a leader in geographic research and teaching.
Greetings from the Syracuse University Geography Department!
Spring is underway in Central New York, and we all are enjoying some warmer weather.
Next month, we will hold our 4thannual Donald W. Meinig Undergraduate Lecture. This event celebrates all the hard work of our graduating seniors and honors Don Meinig’s five decades of research, teaching, and service to our department. This year’s speaker is our
very own Prof. John Western. I’ve seen snippets of his talk, and it promises to be a fascinating look at landscapes close to the heart of both John and Don Meinig. Please join us if you are in Syracuse for the talk –
5:15 pm, Thursday, April 21st, 2016 in 220 Eggers Hall.
Many of us will head to San Francisco later this month for the AAG annual meetings. If you are an alum, a prospective graduate student, or just friend of the department, please join us at our AAG party, held with the University of Toronto. We’d love to see you there. Here is a link
to the invitation.
As always, if you’re a prospective graduate student, check out
our webpage or email
Prof. Tom Perreault, our Graduate Director. We want to hear from you!
If you’re an undergraduate student, check out
our webpage, as well as
geocuse.syr.edu – a website created by our geography majors. On both sites, you can learn more about our geography major, courses, and the things you can do with a geography degree.
Prof. Jane Read, our Director of Undergraduate Studies, is also happy to speak with you.
