The Geography Department at University of Mary Washington offers a wide range of courses for both majors and non-majors.
We offer two majors, in Geospatial Analysis and Geography.
We offer a certificate in Geographic Information Science (just like a minor for undergraduate students) that can be taken with any major. Courses in this program are offered in evenings as well as during the day and are available to non-degree seeking students.
We participate in several minors, notably in Climate Science, Middle East Studies, and Urban Studies.
The Department’s ten full-time faculty are actively engaged in research in political geography, GIScience, geography and social justice, geomorphology, biogeography, historical geography, heritage tourism, and critical cartography. Recent publications include books and book chapters with the Routledge, Blackwell, Wiley-Blackwell, Temple University Press, and Ashgate Publishers. Journal articles by faculty appear in Urban Geography, Cultural Geography, the Geographical Review, Progress in Human Geography, Social and Cultural Geography, the Southeastern Geographer, and Iranian Studies.
Students and visitors are welcome to drop by the Department on the third floor of Monroe Hall to learn more about us, ask questions, and see our facilities. Contact the Chair here.
