The guide, now in its 14th edition, provides information about requirements, course offerings, financial aid, and personnel for 150 graduate departments of geography in the United States and Canada.

Each entry includes the dates the department and the graduate program were founded, degrees offered, number of graduate students in residence and not in residence, chairman of the department, address and telephone of person to write for further information, and a list of theses and dissertations completed from July 1980 to June 1981. The entry also thoroughly describes the scope, emphasis, and academic requirements of each program, available research facilities and equipment, admission requirements, and possible financial aid. A listing of staff includes highest degree attained, year and granting institution, rank, and specialization. A staff directory and geographical index conclude the guide. (Author/RM)
