The Department of Geography at The University of Alabama offers a PhD and an MS in geography with four areas of concentration:
- Earth system science
- Environment and natural resources
- Environment and society
- Geographic information science
In addition, the department offers a GIS certificate program that enables students to acquire technical and analytical skills.
The graduate program in geography prepares students to pursue further academic study and to work in a broad range of positions with federal, state, and local governments; environmental consulting firms; private conservation and resource management agencies; and educational institutions.
Nearly all of our graduate students are funded with paid tuition and stipends.
