Geography is an interdisciplinary field that connects ecological, atmospheric, hydrologic, and geologic sciences to understanding the impacts of a dynamic and changing landscape on natural and human-dominated landscapes.
Geography – Geographic Information Science Emphasis students at University of Arizona may choose to focus on specific areas such as climate change, fire history, biogeography, arid lands, or other topics that bridge physical sciences. Students learn to analyze data, use cartographic and geographic information systems, and work in the field and in remote-sensing laboratories. Internships are integral to the major and credit can be earned for internships in the public private and non-profit sectors.
- Introduction to Map Science
- Cartographic Design and Production
- Integrated Geospatial Technologies
“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
