Science Hall, home of Geography, in the heart of the UW-Madison Campus. For nearly a century, UW-Madison has been home to one of the top ranked geography departments in the nation. Formally established as its own department in 1928, the historic Science Hall has always been our home. Geography grew out of the Geology Department, an original Science Hall tenant.

The Geography Department offers a comprehensive Geography major, along with a minor in Geography and a GIS Certificate. A Geography major/minor provides a window on a world made smaller by advances in telecommunications and transportation technologies, by the integrated operations of multinational corporations, by international terrorism and by environmental hazards that accompany global warming.
