Welcome to the virtual view of our Geography Department at Oklahoma State University. We are an active group of faculty and staff supporting one of the finest geography programs available. Department specialties emphasize resource management, cultural and historical geography, and urban and transportation geography. Faculty expertise in resource management centers on water, atmospheric/surface modeling, outdoor recreation, soils, agriculture, and the economics and policy of resource allocation and use. The department has a longstanding tradition of research in cultural geography, including the geography of sport, language, traditional technology, and Native Americans. Our faculty are involved in research projects related to historic preservation, geoarchaeology, and cultural and political ecology. Expertise in urban and transportation issues also drives our research on transportation corridors, urban studies, and network analysis. Many of our faculty and students specialize in spatial analytical skills, and we offer an exceptionally strong GIScience program (GIS, GPS, remote sensing, spatial analysis) and a Certificate in Geographic Information Systems. We offer B.S., B.A., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Geography, and work with an interdisciplinary graduate program on campus to offer the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Environmental Science.
