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. 

The two-year 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, students from CNM seeking a baccalaureate degree may also transfer to other institutions.
