"If the last decade has taught us anything, it should have taught us that understanding the world around us is complicated. Global strife is driven by a nexus of political, cultural, economic, and environmental problems. Geography is the one discipline that has always attempted to integrate these perspectives." —Thomas L. Millette
The Departments of Geology and Geography encourage their majors to study abroad for a single semester, year or a summer. Our faculty will help students find programs that best fit their academic and personal goals.
Geography majors have the opportunity to study in a broad collection of settings that include Central and South America, Western Europe, Africa, Asia, and the always popular Australasia. Since much of the world outside the US has a deeper tradition of geography education at the university level, the curricular opportunities are nothing short of spectacular.
For a list of where past and present Geography majors have studied and a summary of the courses that they took abroad, check this searchable database. Note that this is not a definitive list of what is possible and should serve only as a useful guide and planning resource.
