The Info Graphics Lab is a mapping and geospatial technologies facility located in the Department of Geography. The laboratory works on a variety of supported projects with faculty members, researchers, and government agencies. The application of cartographic design and geographic information science is its focus. It supports research, instruction, and public service activities at the university. Graduate and undergraduate students may be employed on lab projects. Undergraduate students in the Department of Geography develop an awareness of the natural and cultural landscapes of several regions of the world and investigate the processes that form them. Lower-division courses are open to any student at the university. For students transferring to the university in their third year, preparation in introductory college geography courses is desirable. An undergraduate major in geography follows a broadly based general degree program. Bachelor of Science (BS) degree is offered in the department. To achieve depth in a particular subfield of geography, electives are chosen from one of six tracks: environment, economy, and sustainability; geographic education; water science and policy; culture, politics, and place; environmental systems; geographic information system science; Although a degree in geography is a liberal arts degree, many graduates have found related vocational opportunities in government or private employment, principally in planning, environmental research, cartography, or geographic information system science.
