Interim Chair: Dr. Matthew Zook
The University of Kentucky’s Department of Geography is known for high quality research and education in human geography, physical geography, and mapping.
Faculty and student research in the Department of Geography focuses on interrelated thematic clusters. The clusters facilitate collaborative scholarship though they typically do not function as formal research teams. The clusters tend to work as loose and overlapping intellectual communities that can incorporate working groups, reading groups, and collaborative projects, and they give a sense of the breadth of the research conducted in the department.
