Geography, MA

M.A. Requirements

Only students seeking a Geography, Ph.D.  are admitted to the Graduate School of Geography.  However, two types of M.A. degrees are available once enrolled as a doctoral (Ph.D.) Student:  Pre-doctoral 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. 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 at the end of the second year meeting the departmental requirements to receive the M.A.
