The MA Geography curriculum balances breadth with depth. Entering students without previous work in geography are required to take prerequisite courses in physical and human geography, as well as geographic techniques, plus two upper-division courses selected on advisement. See SF STATE Bulletin description.
All geography Masters students must complete a foundation seminar in the scope and method of geography, as well as seminars in both physical and human geography (with necessary prerequisites.) Additional seminars and upper-division coursework offer an opportunity for specialization.
