The Geography program welcomes its first cohort of geography majors this Fall (Fall 2021)! Save the date for September 14, 12:00pm-1:00pm for our new student welcome event!

If you are considering majoring in geography at CSUSM starting in Fall 2022, consider applying during the CSUSM Priority Application Period for Fall 2022, which is October 1 - November 30, 2021. 

Students in the geography program develop a solid grounding in geographic fundamentals. They study the global food system, ancient landscapes in the Middle East, and global climate change through hands-on experiences and classes featuring high impact projects like student research presented at the annual CSUSM research symposium. They also develop core skills in GIS and other field methods.
