The Department of Geography at The University of Alabama offers an MS in geography with four areas of concentration:
Earth system science
Environment and natural resources
Environment and society
Geographic information science
The graduate program in geography prepares students to pursue further academic study and to work in a broad range of positions with federal, state, and local governments; environmental consulting firms; private conservation and resource management agencies; and educational institutions.
Nearly all of our graduate students are funded with paid tuition and stipends.
LENGTH OF PROGRAM
The MS degree is designed to be completed in two years, although a small number of students do not attend full-time and pursue the degree over a longer period. The department also offers a night program allowing part-time students to pursue their graduate degree in the evening hours.
