This program is one in which distinguished Geography majors complete an ambitious set of classes and projects. If you complete the requirements, you can graduate “with honors” in Geography.
Internships are an excellent way to get some real word experience, build a network of contacts, and apply what you have learned as a geographer. An internship experience on your resume can also be very attractive to a potential employer and can open doors to a job or career.
As a major research university, UNH provides all students with the unique and valuable opportunity to conduct research during their undergraduate years. As a geography major, you might consider applying for the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping's Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship.
Please visit the COLA Scholarships & Financial Aid page for details concerning Geography scholarships.
The Department of Geography strongly encourages students who wish to study abroad to do so and will do everything it can to facilitate the process. If you plan to study abroad, please consider applying for a grant from the Robert G. LeBlanc Memorial Fund.
UNH offers a wide range of opportunities to study abroad while earning credit towards your degree. Often geography students studying abroad have been able to take courses that we do not or cannot offer in our small department. Without exception, geography students who have studied abroad describe the experience as one of the most enriching and transforming of their lives. Our students have studied in such diverse countries as Britain, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Ghana, and India.
Student Association of Geographers
The Student Association of Geographers (SAG) is a UNH student organization founded in the spring of 2010. Its aim is to nurture a community of student geographers within UNH by providing a place for interaction and active outreach to the larger geography community. It seeks to engage and encourage students in an ongoing conversation about the diverse field of geography, ultimately fostering student involvement and enriching students' UNH geography experience.
