M.A. Requirements


Only students seeking a Geography, Ph.D.  are admitted to the Graduate School of Geography and elegible for the M.A. in Geography.  However, two types of M.A. degrees are available once enrolled as a doctoral (Ph.D.) student: pre-doctoral (en-route to Ph.D.), and non-doctoral (or terminal). A pre-doctoral M.A. should be requested at the time of achieving ABD (“All But Dissertation”) status. This type of M.A. degree would be for students entering the doctoral degree program directly from a B.A. or B.S. and/or if they have a Master’s degree in something other than geography. The non-doctoral M.A. in geography is given only if the student leaves the doctoral program before completing the Ph.D., and meets the departmental requirements to receive the M.A.
