Writing & Research Guide

For more information about senior project guidelines, please visit the senior project pages for each major.

Our department has created a functional writing and research guide designed to help you better communicate your theses in your academic assignments. 

The field of geography has unique citation requirements because of the common use of maps, charts, graphs, and other non-text sources. This guide provides you with important standards that you must use for your academic writing as well as future professional projects. 

Read and download our GES Writing Guide.

Along with this guide, the Center for Writing provides invaluable assistance, both online and in-person at Nicholson Hall, for students wanting to improve their writing, topic creation skills, and research.
