The Department of Geography at the University of North Texas offers undergraduate instruction leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree with a concentration in either earth or regional science. Students may also elect to minor in geology or archaeology. The program has an applied focus involving the application of geographic tools, research techniques and concepts to problem-solving. Approximately 140 students major in geography at UNT. They work directly with faculty and receive individual advising.

All M.S. degree plans must include certain required courses (mentioned below). While we do not confine our students to tracks or a common curriculum, we suggest courses for students who desire to focus on particular themes (tracks): Applied Geomorphology,  Water Resources Management, Urban Environmental Management, Applied GIS, and Archaeology.

The Department of Geography works closelywith the Institute of Applied Science (IAS) which coordinates a Ph.D. in Environmental Science.
