Why Geography, Environment, and Sustainability?

The Department of Geography, Environment, and Sustainability (GES) at UNCG has developed its programs and resources to prepare students for careers and advanced research in a range of fields such as physical geography, human geography, planning, Geographic Information Science (GISc), sustainability, and environmental studies. The Department offers B.A. degrees with formal concentrations possible in urban/economic/transportation geography, GIScience/remote sensing, and earth/environmental science, and since 2018, a B.A. with concentrations in Environmental Studies, Sustainability Studies, or both, is also offered through the Environment and Sustainability Program. At the graduate level, we offer the M.A. (applied geography) and Ph.D. degrees in Geography. Post-baccalaureate certificates are also available in “Global and Regional Studies in Geography” and “Urban and Economic Development” through the Department.
