Welcome to the Department of Cartography & Geography at East Central University


The Department offers a curriculum leading to a B.S. in Cartography with a Concentration either in Geotechniques or Geography. Non-majors may minor in either Cartography or Geography. The Geotechniques concentration focuses upon the analytical, theoretical, and technical skills necessary for employment as a cartographer, GIS analyst, and related professions. The Geography concentration follows a more traditional curriculum in the discipline, training the student to think spatially thus offering a set of unique skill sets to a variety of vocations. Both degrees prepare outstanding students for graduate school. As a state-funded regional university, our students have the opportunities of a modest-size campus, while our small department offers highly individualized instruction.
