The Committee on Geographical Sciences is currently in the process of being renovated into the Committee on Environment, Geography and Urbanization (CEGU), which is envisioned as a robust interdisciplinary platform for critical thinking, advanced research, and innovative pedagogy on the societal and spatial dimensions of climate change, biodiversity loss, and environmental transformation. This new committee will shortly house the Environmental and Urban Studies major and minor, which students previously interested in the now-closed Geographic Sciences major are encouraged to explore. More information about CEGU can be found on our interim website,


Students who wish to explore the GIScience programs are encouraged to visit the interim GIScience information site to learn more about the minor and MAPSS concentration, and courses.


New full websites for CEGU and for the GIScience programs are currently under development.
