Geographers Map Coastal Cemeteries

Geography professor David Holt and his students have been mapping cemeteries in coastal Mississippi for the past year.  Their study focuses upon updating cemetery plats that were lost due to flooding from Hurricane Katrina in 2005.  They are using ground penetrating radar, GPS, and mapping to aid them in their quest.  For more information have a look at their project.

Sustainable Development at Southern Miss

The Geography program at Southern Miss has recently introduced Sustainable Development as an emphasis within their Geography BS degree.  The focus is to combine elements of environmental, economic, social and cultural sustainability.  The degree should be of interest to geographers seeking careers in human/cultural studies, regional specialization, and land use planning.  For more information please contact us at 601.266.4729.
