Welcome | Geography, Environment, and Sustainability

About Us


Welcome to the Department of Geography, Environment, and Sustainability (GES). The Department is committed to bringing a range of approaches and technologies to bear on some of the most pressing questions of our time. GES offers the B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees in Geography, the B.A. degree in Environment and Sustainability, and the M.S. degree in Sustainability and Environment (entirely online!). Dr. Aaron Allen, Associate Professor of Music, is jointly appointed in GES as Director of the Environment and Sustainability Programs.

Please do not hesitate to stop by or contact any of the faculty about classes, degrees, and special events offered by the Department. We invite you to attend our regular Wednesday free lunches (check the website for an up-to-date schedule and list of speakers). Let me or any of the faculty know if you have questions about Geography, Environment, and Sustainability at UNCG!
