Established in 1903, the Department of Geography at The University of Alabama fosters an exciting and synergistic environment where opportunities for discovery abound. Our teaching and research interests span the discipline and the globe.

We offer BA and BS degrees in geography with multiple concentrations in addition to minors in geography and geographic information science (GIS), and certificates in GIS and urban and regional planning. We also coordinate the College’s interdisciplinary BS degree in environmental science.

At the graduate level, we offer a program leading to an MS degree in geography and a GIS certificate program. The department typically enrolls approximately 200 geography and environmental science majors and generally has some 35 graduate students in residence.
