Welcome

Geography studies how physical, biological, and human processes shape the landscape in which we live and cause regions to differ from each other. Geography is everything!

Geography is a bridging, integrating, and synthesizing science. We combine our talents with scientists in other disciplines to make a difference as we improve people’s ability to prosper as the land changes. We also use geospatial technology (GIS, Remote Sensing, and GPS) to help solve real-world problems.

The department received a National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education grant, and as a result has develop three new advanced GIST courses and a 9 credit GIST micro-credential.  An A.A.S. in GIST is pending SUNY approval. Grant details are available online.
