At CWU, geography is more than maps and charts—it is a vibrant field of study that involves hands-on, real-life involvement in finding solutions that will enhance the future. You’ll enjoy multiple field trips in locations that range from large cities to remote wilderness areas.


CWU boasts one of the finest Geographic Information System (GIS) teaching and research laboratories in the Northwest. There is a biogeography lab, a soils lab, and a hydrology lab in which students and faculty members conduct research. Central offers a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in Geography with specializations in geographic information science and environmental and resource geography.

Why this program 

Elvin Delgado, CWU assistant professor of geography, is one of only five public university faculty members to receive the coveted Rep. Timm Ormsby Citizenship Award.

The award “seeks to encourage, recognize and honor exemplary civic engagement.”

CWU is home to the prestigious Center for Spatial Information and Research (CSIR), which coordinates and enhances the application of established and emerging technologies used to create, manage and analyze spatial information.
