Department Chair: Dr. Derek Alderman, Head

Welcome to the Department of Geography. The Department is housed in the Burchfiel Geography Building which lies in the heart of the University of Tennessee campus. The building was funded by the generosity of the late William Burchfiel Jr. and is named in honor of his father. Inside the building are the men and women who comprise the Department. The faculty, staff, and students in Geography bring an enthusiasm, dedication, and genuine friendliness to the affairs of the Department. We invite you to explore our Department through our web site, and then to contact us directly. We offer a quality educational experience, and we are engaged in stimulating and important research. Our outreach and public service functions are outstanding. These are exciting times in the department. Our major program is growing, our graduate students continue to win awards, and our faculty remain committed to all aspects of scholarship. Geography Departmental Page
