Why choose Geography or Atmospheric Science? 

"I chose atmospheric science because I find weather absolutely fascinating. I grew up seeing hurricanes and thunderstorms and wanted to understand why and how these phenomena form. I chose the University of Kansas because the Midwest has very interesting weather patterns. I'm glad I did because I feel like I'm part of a family, which makes me proud to be a Jayhawk." - Daryan H., 2018 KU Atmospheric Science graduate

"I chose geography because I wanted a major that would not only allow me travel but encourage me to do so." - Matt F., KU Geography graduate student

"Geography has a variety of different career options." - Dory T., KU Geography graduate
