Storm Intensity in the United States
Are you interested in how human beings interact with their environment? Do you want to understand the roots of environmental injustice? Are you a tech fan looking to leverage the power of GIS, automation, and spatial statistics? Have you ever considered how remote sensing could impact the trajectory of an entire industry? Perhaps you find yourself thinking of how people develop both physical and social constructs. If so…
Geography is a field built on three pillars - the human, the environment, and the technical. By advancing basic knowledge as a foundation for problem-solving, and exposing students to a wide variety of applications across diverse interests, Geography equips its scholars with skill sets that are increasingly marketable in a world of complex questions. Many of our graduates, researchers, and faculty employ skills in geospatial science, statistics, and critical analysis. The trained geographer has the ability to identify issues or phenomena, ask appropriate questions, and deploy techniques from perspectives unique to the field and for the benefit of society.
Two undergraduate degrees are offered reflecting Geography’s position between the social and natural sciences.
Bachelor’s to Master’s GIS Pathway
Our pathway programs allow you to share or ‘double count’ up to 12 graduate credit hours.
Our variety of organizations allow students to stay connected and get involved
We, in the Department of Geography at Florida State University, acknowledge that our university is located on land that is the ancestral and traditional territory of the Apalachee Nation, the Muscogee Creek Nation, the Miccosukee Tribe of Florida, and the Seminole Tribe of Florida. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to their descendants, to the generations yet unborn, and to all Indigenous peoples. In doing so, we support the movement for a Native American and Indigenous Studies Center on campus.
