Larry G. Jarrett, M.A.
Retired Professor

M.A. Geography, Marshall University, 1965

Professor Larry Jarrett’s principal interests are in cultural, political, and economic geography with a particular focus on Africa, the Third World, and Europe. He has been a member of the Department of Geography since 1994. Professor Jarrett has more than 15 years of experience on the continent of Africa and eight years in Europe in various diplomatic and private capacities. This field experience in such diverse locations as Burundi and Sweden afford students unique opportunities to learn firsthand about real-life applications of geographic knowledge and skills. His most recent research projects include an exploration of how the Clean Air Act of 1990 will impact West Virginia in the new millennium and the status of the Tazara Railroad in Tanzania and Zambia. He is a member of the Association of American Geographers and the Southeast Division of the Association of American Geographers.

Professor Jarrett is an enthusiastic supporter of Marshall University athletic teams and can frequently be found in attendance at various campus sports venues. He was recently honored with induction into the MU Black Legends Hall of Fame for his achievements as a member of the Thundering Herd football team when he was a student at Marshall in the 1960s. In addition to his interests in Marshall athletics, Jarrett is an avid sports fisherman, amateur chef, and viticulturist. He is most proud to be a grandfather to Belize.

Professor Jarrett retired from teaching in 2010.
