Graduate Studies in Geography & Atmospheric Sciences

Graduate work in Geography has been offered at The Ohio State University since the 1920s. Currently, our department offers Master’s and Doctorate programs in Geography and Atmospheric Sciences. At both levels, an emphasis is placed on two requirements for geographers – theoretical understanding and methodological skills. Within the field, our department is known for it’s theoretical and empirical approaches in our four specialty areas:

Environment & Society

We are also known for our Atmospheric Sciences Program, a separate degree granting program within the Department of Geography.
