Geography

Welcome to the Geography Department

Macalester's nationally and internationally recognized Geography Department, founded in 1947 by Hildegard Binder Johnson, is unusually broad in scope for an undergraduate liberal arts college. The department leads students through an exploration of urban and regional planning, environmental geography, cartography, geographic information science and socioeconomic development in various regions of the world. Students may major or minor in geography. Students may also take a specialized minor focused on Geographic Information Systems or major in geography with an additional concentration in Urban Studies.
