Welcome,

The Department of Geography, Planning, and Environment at East Carolina University explores the connections between society, land use, landform processes, and climate, linking these disciplines with cutting-edge geospatial technologies. Our faculty and students work together to understand how spatial patterns, social constructs, and environmental forces lay out challenges and opportunities faced by societies around the world. Students collaborate with faculty and the community on research projects to help those societies thrive.

We invite you to learn more about our programs, degree offerings, and research through our web page. We do hope that you'll visit us in person if you haven't yet had the opportunity.
