Get the Geographic Edge for Your Career

Geography - the original environmental science and academic home of geographic information science - works at the intersection of globalization, nature, and society.  Geographers study topics ranging from land change and spatial science to geocomputation/big data analysis and sustainability.  More now than ever, a global understanding is key to success in today's interconnected world.  Among the geosciences, geographers are expected to enjoy both excellent and expanding job opportunities with very competitive salaries.  Plus, you'll know that your career is making a positive impact on both people AND the planet!

Join our team of talented students who have earned awards and recognition by organizations including the National Science Foundation, NASA, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Department of Defense, Environmental Systems Research Institute (Esri), and American Association of Geographers (AAG).  Kansas State University geography students from our award-winning geography honor society have also earned 19 GTU Buzzard Scholarships, the most from any university in the United States.
