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!

    Winter has arrived in Central New York! The semester is underway, it’s snowing with gusto, and we are reviewing graduate applications.

    We have several exciting events this semester. Our colloquium series includes talks by Elvin Wyly, Melanie DuPuis, Meghan Cope, and our very own John Western, who will give the 2016 Donald Meinig Undergraduate Lecture in April. We are looking forward to these fabulous speakers. Please join us if you are in Syracuse.

    Many of us will head to San Francisco at the end of March 2016 for the AAG annual meetings. If you are an alum, a prospective graduate student, or just friend of the department, keep your eyes peeled for our joint party with the University of Toronto. We’d love to see you.

    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 – 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.

    Happy Winter!
