We attract, and encourage, students from a wide variety of undergraduate and masters degree backgrounds. We offer the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Master of Arts (M.A.), and Master of Science (M.S.), degrees. See our Geography section of the University Graduate School Bulletin for more information.
