Gamma Theta Upsilon Honor Society

Gamma Theta Upsilon (GTU) is an international honor society in Geography.  GTU was founded in 1928 and became a national organization in 1931.  Members of GTU have met academic requirements and share a background and interest in Geography.  GTU chapter activities support Geography knowledge and awareness.

Geography is a discipline that integrates the environmental and social sciences.  Geography studies location, places, regions, human-environment interactions, and movement.  Its tools include cartography and geographic information systems (GIS).  On the job, Geography graduates address social, physical, and environmental problems from the global to the local scale.

Geography courses address topics that range from neighborhood revitalization, energy consumption and population dynamics to resources scarcity, climate change and natural hazards.  Regional courses emphasize Africa, Russia and the Eurasian States, and United States.  Methods courses emphasize map design and spatial analysis.

Pitt-Johnstown offers the only Geography degree progarm within the University of Pittsburgh system.
