M.Sc. or PhD in Mountain Geography

One of our departmental three pillars is in Mountain Geography. We are interested in the scientific understanding of mountain environments in spatial context and with attention to the physical and human systems. Regional foci are the Rocky Mountains in the U.S.A., and the Altai, Hindu Kush-Karakoram-Himalaya, Pamir, and Tien Shan mountains in "High Asia." Specializations are in paleo-environments, environmental change, glaciers, periglacial, geomorphology, environmental rehabilitation, environmental hazards and vulnerability, and water resources.
