The degrees of master of arts (MA), master of science (MS) and master of natural science (MNS) are offered in geography. Students concentrating in cultural, economic, urban or historical geography enroll in the MA program, while those in physical geography and mapping sciences usually enroll in the MS program. The MNS is a special program designed for students seeking a degree with a broader, interdisciplinary focus. It is a non thesis program of 36 hours, half of which is in geography and the other half in related sciences.
