The Doctoral Degree in Geography

Expectations for Being Part of the Geography Community

A critical aspect of the graduate experience is participation in events beyond the coursework requirements. Thus, graduate students are expected to go to professional conferences, attend colloquiums and are highly encouraged to present and/or publish from their theses and dissertations. Travel funds in support of graduate students travel is periodically available from the Graduate School or the Geography Department but is typically quite limited. Please be aware that evaluation for continued and future funding includes regular attendance at departmental events such as colloquiums.
