Are you interested in pursuing a master’s degree in Geography? Our Geography 4+1 College Pathway is an integrated program that allows you to obtain your master’s degree in a shorter amount of time. In the 4+1 Pathway, you will take graduate courses in your senior year, followed by one additional year as a graduate student at IU to earn your M.A or M.S. in Geography.
Our Geography 4+1 Pathway program is especially suited to students who would like to deepen their practical skills in GIS and/or other research methods in preparation for careers in the public, private or non-profit sector, or who seek additional training in geographic theory and research as preparation for graduate school applications. Our M.A./M.S. requirements are sufficiently flexible to allow you to create programs that meet your career and academic goals.
