After SU Geography
Our department has been around for a long time. Founded in 1926 as a matter of fact, meaning that there have been more than a thousand graduates of the department! Since 2008, 136 people have graduated with a B.A. degree in geography (conferred jointly by the SU College of Arts & Sciences and the SU Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs), and 98 people have graduated with it as an undergraduate minor.
Our alumni have gone on to find fabulous careers, where they use geography every day! Read about how some of these recent alumni discovered geography, what skills they learned as an undergrad, and advice they have for you.
