The University of Denver's Master of Arts in geography offers areas of emphasis in physical geography, human geography and human-environment interaction. Alumni with human geography emphases can go on to careers with state and local planning agencies, developers, consulting firms and private industry in Colorado and elsewhere. Those with interests in physical geography have found employment in federal and state agencies, environmental consulting firms and private enterprises. Human-environment interaction students have opportunities to pursue careers on both sides, and are particularly suited to work to advance sustainability and responsible resource usage.
