The Geography Department offers three undergraduate programs:
The B.A. in Geography is our most diverse degree, offering students a chance to explore the entire range of geography without specialization, or to specialize in some field if they choose. Besides exploring the topical content of geography, this program offers a chance to acquire technical skills, especially in the areas of Geographic Information Science and data-analysis techniques.
Students interested in teaching geography at the high school level should enter the B.A. program in Geography Education, which adds courses in education to the basic B.A. in Geography. This program leads to teacher certification for the State of Delaware.
Students interested primarily in physical geography, climatology, or meteorology may consider the B.S. program in Environmental Science. This is an interdisciplinary program to which the Geography Department contributes a number of courses and provides the Atmospheric Environment specialization. It is strongly science-based, with an emphasis on building research skills.
