The Arizona State University School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning offers students a rich, broad exposure to the wide range of theoretical domains and methods that characterize current research in geography and planning, under the guidance of highly-acclaimed faculty.

The doctoral programs in geography and urban planning position graduates for careers focusing on research and teaching. Read about graduate research here.

The geography MA is a thesis-based program with flexibility to allow you to focus in an area of interest, and graduate to begin professional careers or continue on to doctoral studies.

The school offers two professional degrees, the Masters of Advanced Study in Geographic Information Systems (MAS GIS) and the Masters in Urban and Environmental Studies (MUEP) and the concurrent MUEP and MS/MA in Sustainability. Read about graduates of these programs here.

Through concurrent degree programs, you may combine the MUEP degree with a masters' degree in sustainability, public administration or public policy, earning two masters' degrees in a 3-year period. The skills you gain can give you a significant career advantage, integrating knowledge in two related areas.
