The Geography BA/MA program focuses on economic and business geography; it is designed so that students can obtain both degrees in five (5) years. The degree offers students the opportunity to learn about trade from both theoretical and practical perspectives. Students use the tools of economic and business geography to understand the dynamics of multinational corporations, global financial markets, and technology and innovation change. As they progress through the degree, students learn to evaluate how these global-scale changes create opportunities and constraints for regional development in the United States and abroad. Students focus on the critical social, economic, and environmental challenges faced by workers, corporate decision-makers, government policy makers, and non-governmental organizations, which ultimately shape social outcomes and patterns of uneven development. Students in this program pay Master’s-level tuition for only three (3) of the ten (10) semesters of the program.
