Overview

Geography students at Kansas State University may pursue a general program in geography or choose to develop a concentration in either environmental studies or community studies. 

Other concentrations may be developed to reflect the particular interests of a student. For example, a student may earn a teaching licensure while working toward a degree in geography.

The bachelor of science or the bachelor of arts degree may be earned.

Another curriculum leads to the bachelor of science degree in secondary education: Earth and Space Science (EDESC); Social Studies (EDSST) Teacher Liensure Programs; or Second Teaching Field in Secondary Education is available to students who have successfully completed an approved full licensure program in another teaching area. 

These optional programs give individuals the opportunity to teach in more than one area. These options lead to full licensure in the subject or subject area for grades 7 through 12.
