Undergraduate Program Description
The Department of Geography at NMSU seeks to enable its undergraduate students to be responsible citizens, lifelong learners, and professional geographers with critical thinking and problem-solving skills that make them competitive in both graduate programs and the job market. To this end, the Department offers a comprehensive academic undergraduate program that leads to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Geography with a concentration in either Human-Environment Relationships (HER) or Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIS&T) *. The Department also offers access to various kinds of geospatial analytical software (e.g., ArcGIS, ERDAS, and ENVI) in our teaching/computing laboratory, access to field equipment (e.g., GPS units) from our field laboratory, research opportunities (e.g., in the Spatial Applications Research Center), one-on-one advising, awards and scholarships, information about career opportunities, and personal and professional development opportunities in various student organizations (Geography Club, GTU, ASPRS).
