    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! 

    September is here, and our departmental is back in full swing. Our new graduate students are here. Classes are underway, and we’re looking forward to a great semester. The office is bustling, and it’s great to catch up with everyone after the summer break.

    This month, our department will host a multi-university nature-society workshop spearheaded by Prof. Tom Perreault. Be sure to check back for more information on this event. It looks very exciting.

    We are also in the process of creating a fabulous line-up of former graduate and undergraduate students who will return to campus and share with our current geography majors and minors at our annual Career Night. I can’t wait to hear what they have to share with our students.

    Our Geography majors and minors will soon participate in their yearly Fall Hike. We’ll post pictures from the hike on our website. We have a lot of others events for undergraduates this year, so keep an eye out for updates.

    If you’re a prospective graduate student, check out information about our program under “Graduate Studies.” Application deadlines will be here before you know, and we look forward to seeing your application.

    If you’re a prospective undergraduate student, check out our “Undergraduate Studies” page, or email our Undergraduate Director, Prof. Jane Read. She will be happy to talk to you about our major and minors.

    Our department is now on Twitter. Follow us at @SUGeographer. We’re just getting our account started, but watch for tweets about our department’s activities on it. Or, tweet us about what you’re doing!
