Students, professors, and alumni of UMW don’t need a map to find the best geography program in the southeastern United States. It’s right here in Fredericksburg.
Now, the higher education data analytics and research company College Factual has pinpointed it as well. College Factual has teamed with USA Today to name the University of Mary Washington the region’s No. 1 geography program for 2018. Three other Virginia universities made the list: Virginia Tech at No. 2, George Mason University at No. 6, and James Madison University at No. 7.
Others in the Top Ten are the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; UNC at Charlotte; Florida State University; the University of Georgia; the University of Florida; and the University of Tennessee.
