About the Department

Geography provides a unique spatial perspective that seeks to explain patterns of differences and commonality across the human and natural environment.  Housed within the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, the department has nationally and internationally recognized faculty engaged in cutting edge research and offering exciting educational opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students.

The Department of Geography mission seeks to improve our understanding of human-environment interactions. A hallmark of geographic scholarship is the spatial patterning of those interactions that operate at varied temporal and spatial scales. Geographic teaching and scholarship are of great importance and relevance to society, as they address many aspects of global, long-term sustainability. Topics studied such as climate change, energy supply, water availability, land degradation, urban design, and place identity, reflect the teaching, research and service activities conducted by UD geographers.
