Departmental Areas of Focus

Geography has always been about thinking across boundaries. As we seek to understand and better address societal and environmental challenges, Geography’s inherent interdisciplinarity is its greatest asset as a field of study. Our vision for the UNCG Department of Geography, Environment, and Sustainability reflects its historical strengths at the intersection of environment, human geography, and geographic technologies, and it reflects a desire to have our teaching and research strive for a better world.
