It's about people, places and identity
The research interests of the Human Geography faculty focus on how economic, political, and social practices are shaped by place and location and how such practices influence the ways in which economic, political, and social landscapes are produced.
It's about the world around us
Physical geography research and teaching activities here at UGA provide a solid foundation for the next generation of physical geographers to address current and future topics related to the physical earth, environment, and climate.
It's about mapping out our future
GIScience research in the geography department at UGA includes a wide range of work on remote sensing, cartographic visualization, urban and resource modeling, and qualitative GIS. We use state of the art equipment and techniques in order to advance our understanding of the real-world complexities.
