Geography Program

Geography is the field of science describing, analyzing, and understanding the distribution and spatial interaction of Earth’s physical and cultural landscapes.  Using tools such as mapping, it focuses on the complex interrelationships between Earth and human systems, sustainability of global and local resources, and social and demographic phenomena.

This program is designed to meet the requirements for an Associate of Arts in Geography from CNM and prepare you to obtain a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in Geography at the University of New Mexico. However, if you are seeking a baccalaureate degree, you may also transfer to other institutions. Students interested in transfer to UNM should consult the UNM Geography Department. You can refer to the catalog of their intended transfer institution for admission, program, course, and graduation requirements. College catalogs are generally available online. You should also consult a faculty advisor and/or an Academic Coach with CNM Connect Services.
