Welcome to the Geography and Environmental Sciences Department at the University of Colorado Denver. The university is in the heart of downtown, and our department is more than a collection of classrooms and labs—although we couldn’t be prouder of our state-of-the-art Facility for Advanced Spatial Technology (FAST) or Geospatial Analysis and Mapping (GAM) Labs. The GES program is a passport to understanding the lively tapestry of our shared planet, a hub of academic excellence, and a playground for the curious, adventurous, and environmentally conscious. 

Here, you won't be confined to textbooks. Our classroom extends through the city and throughout the epic Rocky Mountain region. Geography is more than maps; it's understanding the dynamic relationships between people and their environments. 

Our department is committed to addressing pressing environmental issues of our time. From studying the impact of urbanization on racial inequity to researching sustainable food sourcing, we believe in making a positive impact on the world. That means you get to participate in creating the solutions we need today to protect humanity’s future.

So, if you're ready to embark on a journey that goes outside the boundaries of traditional education, join us in the Geography and Environmental Sciences Department at CU Denver. Let's explore, discover, and make a difference together!
