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 of Geography offers four academic programs leading to BS or BA degrees. Our curriculum encompasses the environment, geographic information sciences, urban studies and planning, geographic education, area studies 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.
