The geography program at RMC integrates a human geography perspective rooted in historical political ecology, economic geography, and development geography; geological and environmental science perspectives on landforms, climate, water, soils, vegetation, and ecosystems; and geographic information systems (GIS) training and practice in a way that fosters student engagement with the multifaceted character of development, conservation, and planning problems.

Through interdisciplinary courses, unique field-work, service-learning, and internship opportunities in the Yellowstone River watershed (and beyond), students learn to use appropriate theoretical frameworks, research techniques, and technology including spatial statistics, cartography, GIS and GPS, and remote sensing to extract, analyze, and communicate information about socio-environmental topics from a spatial perspective.
