Geography at the University of Wyoming is an interdisciplinary home for understanding the science of the environment and people of the world. A Bachelor of Science in Geography at UW prepares students to tackle environmental and public challenges from diverse physical and social science perspectives. At the University of Wyoming the Geography Program brings faculty from across campus to work with students to combine physical, socio-political, economic, policy, and technological sciences to solve Earth’s grand challenges.

Geography majors understand the role of space and place in phenomena across a wide range of scales and think critically about interconnections among the physical Earth, culture, economy, politics, and technology. Core courses are housed in the Department of Geology and Geophysics and School of Politics, Public Affairs & International Studies (SPPAIS). Other programs that contribute to a geographic education include Geospatial Information Science and Technology (GIST), Environment and Natural Resources (ENR), and Environmnetal System Science (ESS).
