Maxwell School
  • Environment, Politics, Culture, the World

    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 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 Fall!

    Chair, Department of Geography
