The most recent Academic Analytics data (from 2013) rank us in the top 10% among Geography Ph.D.-granting departments in the U.S.*!
Although we are well aware of the pitfalls of these quantitative rankings, this is an amazing accomplishment and a testimony to our many achievements. The productivity radar plot (larger image) for our department shows us ranking very high in all areas -- books, citations, articles, grants, and awards -- which attests to the breadth and depth of our research accomplishments. Kudos to all of our faculty and their graduate students for making this happen!
