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!
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
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
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.
