Texas State University: Texas State University is internationally recognized as a preeminent location in the United States for research in geography education. The university has supported research in geography education for more than three decades, with the subject area occupying one of three major emphases at the graduate level in the geography department since 2000.
In 1998, the Gilbert M. Grosvenor Center for Geographic Education was founded and has been supported by more than $8 million in grants. The Texas State University geography department has graduated more than half of the PhD’s in geographic education in the United States over the last ten years. There have also been dozens of graduates in the Masters Level Education degrees (both M.A.G. and M.S.).
