About Us

The Department of Geography and Environmental Systems is a multi-disciplinary department with an emphasis on examining the dynamic relationship between social and natural processes. Our faculty members maintain active research and teaching agendas related to all of these areas. Our research seeks to contribute to cutting edge debates across the natural and social sciences, as well as inform policy through our empirical findings. Our program of graduate study is designed to train graduate students who are able to accomplish these same goals.

The Department offers graduate programs leading to M.S and/or Ph.D degrees. Both non-thesis and thesis M.S. options are available. The application deadline for Fall 2018 admission to our graduate program is February 1, 2018. Applications can be completed online through the UMBC Graduate School’s web page:
