Combined B.A.-M.A.

Qualified undergraduates may apply for admission to the M.A. program and, if accepted, simultaneously work toward completion of the requirements for both undergraduate and graduate degrees. See Combined Baccalaureate- Master's Degree Programs for details.

Requirements for Admission to M.A. Program

The Department welcomes applicants with undergraduate majors in geography or any cognate field. Applicants are recommended to submit official Graduate Record Examination scores. Students with deficiencies in their education within geography may be required to complete courses in addition to those required for the M.A., at the discretion of their advisors and the director of the graduate program.

Specialization Tracks

The three broad specialization tracks correspond to major emphases in the field. They are intended not to constrain students' work, but to provide guidance, in the context of individual advisement. Students are required to complete three courses (or 9 credits) in one of the following tracks (all courses in these lists have the Gog- prefix):

Human Geography: 521, 526, 532, 540, 542, 547, 580, 620, and, when on appropriate subjects, 530, 555, 697;

Physical Geography: 504, 519, 532, 585, 593, 685, and when on appropriate subjects, 530, 555, 697;

Geographic Information Systems: 555, 584, 585, 590, 593, 595, 596, 597, 598, 599, 685, and when on appropriate subjects, 530, 697.
