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!
Fall is here in Central New York.
The leaves are just starting to turn, it’s getting cooler… We all know what’s just
around the corner...
Our semester is well underway. We
are excited about the Nature-Society workshop hosted by Cornell University this
month. Our undergraduates are heading to the Middle States AAG Annual Meeting
in Binghamton in October. They are part of a panel – made up of undergraduates –
on what makes an attractive geography program from an undergraduate
perspective. I’m excited to see what they have to say!
In November, some of our graduate students (and faculty) will head to
Penn State for a two-day workshop on “Circuits of Justice.” Grads will workshop
their papers and ideas with faculty and students from both universities. I’m
looking forward to reading some great papers on the way to State College.
The application season is about to begin for our
Graduate program. If you’re a prospective graduate student, check out our
webpage or email Prof.
Tom Perreault, our Graduate Director. We’d love to hear from you!
If you’re an undergraduate student, be sure to check out our
, 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.

The Maxwell School, which opened officially in October of 1924, is turning 90 this fall. To mark this anniversary, we’ve planned a series of on-campus events throughout the upcoming semester.
