Undergraduate Information

The Department of Geography at UNH is an undergraduate-only department offering both major and minor degree programs. With small class sizes, personalized advising by department faculty, and opportunities for independent study, our students receive a high degree of individual attention. 

The geography major provides undergraduates with a solid foundation in geography by uniting social and biophysical sciences, humanities and technology to examine the factors that make a place or environment unique. A geography degree will prepare students to pursue a variety of careers or professional and graduate degrees.
