Founded in 1948, DePaul's Department of Geography is the largest and most comprehensive in the city of Chicago. Our mission is to provide students with a high quality geographic education in which teaching and research excellence are paramount. Geography students explore a range of subject areas including urban and cultural analysis, political geography, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and issues of sustainability, conservation and development.
DePaul's Geography students can achieve membership in the
national Geography Honors Society, Gamma Theta Upsilon, compete for
departmental travel scholarships to attend the Association of American
Geographers national conference, and obtain our Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Certificate in one of Chicago's best known and well-established geotechnology programs. In 2016 the American Association of Geographers honored DePaul's Department of Geography with its award for Bachelors Program Excellence.
Please explore our website to find more information on and resources about the Department of Geography, its programs, courses, faculty and staff, scholarship and travel opportunities, and links to the wider world of professional geographers.
