    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 SU Geography Department!

    August has rolled around, and folks in our department will slowly trickle back into the department from fieldwork in various places, summer conferences, and our favorite writing corners away from campus. Some of us (including me!) will be working on syllabi for new courses, and some of us will be polishing up syllabi for courses we’ve taught before. We will welcome new graduate students and say goodbye to other grad students who will defend their theses and dissertations in the next few weeks.

    We have a lot of great events coming up this fall: a nature-society workshop, a gathering of urban scholars from the U.S. and Canada, a symposium with anthropology focused on undergraduates, and our usual colloquium series. We have a great list of speakers coming through our department in the coming months. Be sure to check back for updates.

    If you’re a prospective graduate student, check out information about our program under “Graduate Studies.”

    If you’re a prospective undergraduate student, be sure check out our “Undergraduate Studies” page.

    In a few weeks, our campus will be bustling again, and the semester will be underway. We are all looking forward to a great new year!

    Chair, Department of Geography
