The Department of Geography & Meteorology offers majors in geography, meteorology, and geography education, as well as minors, including geographic information systems (GIS).
All the department’s programs share a commitment to rigorous classroom and laboratory instruction and to hands-on learning through extensive field experience and internships. Students can forecast storms in the high plains of Kansas, hike historical trails through the mountains of Yellowstone, analyze soil samples taken by students in nearby fields, or survey the Lake Michigan dune system from the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
Prospective meteorologists and geographers please schedule a visit to the department! Admissions will set you up with a full tour and visit with a professor. Just in case you haven’t been scheduled to meet with a professor, please contact the department chair Professor Teresa Bals-Elsholz.
