Geography has a long and strong tradition at ASU, as it was taught from the day the school opened in 1886 and remains an important part of the curriculum today. There are approximately 182 majors in the undergraduate program and approximately 70 graduate students working on MA and PhD degrees. The school’s web page provides detailed information about the discipline of geography, the program, courses, faculty, and students.





School of Geographical Sciences





















The climatology program is rooted in the Office of Climatology, a teaching and research facility established within the School of Geographical Sciences in 1973. The facilities provide a unique setting that encourages interaction among faculty, staff, and students. There are four full-time climate faculty members within the Office and approximately 52 undergraduates and 10 graduate students enrolled in the climate program.



Office of Climatology














Within the Office of Climatology is the Office of the Arizona State Climatologist, a service and research facility that was also established in 1973 and serves as the center of operations for the governor-appointed State Climatologist.
