The Department of Geography and Regional Studies emphasizes the study of human-environment interactions, health and medical geography, and globalization and urban change by applying the latest techniques in geospatial technology, including geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing (RS), and spatial statistics. We offer BA, BS, and MA degrees, and our Graduate Certificate Program in Geospatial Technology is open to both current and non-UM students. Our programs provide an interdisciplinary education with marketable skills for the public and private sectors. Please follow us on social media and explore all things spatial at the "U."‌
