Graduate students in the Department of Geography at UNC-Chapel Hill benefit from a collegial and interdisciplinary environment, participation in our externally-funded research programs, and opportunities for involvement in teaching and departmental governance. We offer both MA and PhD degrees, with a primary focus on students pursuing the PhD who enter the program with or without an MA. Areas of concentration in our diverse and dynamic department include: Earth & Environment; Geographic Information Sciences & Geovisualization; Culture, Society & Space; Globalization & International Development; and Nature & Society.
