Pursuing an MA or PhD in Geography
There are three options: Option I requires a thesis whereas Options II and III do not. We usually encourage students to pursue Option I - writing a thesis will improve a graduate's employment or doctoral program opportunities. In addition, we offer a graduate certficate in Geographic Information Science that will enhance your education and increase your level of specialty within geography. With our graduate programs, there are four areas of study.
Great Plains Studies
Natural Resources and Environmental Geography
