Department of Geography
Mapping Out a Rewarding Future
Studying Geography at Bridgewater State University is not about knowing the capital of Namibia (it’s Windhoek, by the way) but rather about how humans intersect with the natural world. Geography majors learn a broad range of skills and knowledge that is highly applicable in numerous exciting career opportunities, such as an educator, mapmaker, planner, environmental analyst, librarian, preservationist, guide and more.
The department offers both a BS and a BA degree, with a curriculum that encompasses the environment, geographic information sciences, urban studies and planning, geographic education and international development – including how different parts of the world use natural resources such as water and land, and the complex systems governing their use.
“I like the opportunity to work for the places I live and help people have an impact on their communities,” says Jill Maclean, ’00.
