She received her BA from Colorado College in liberal arts and her PhD from the University of Colorado in History. At MSU, Haggerty teaches courses in human and resource geography and supervises graduate students working with her Resources & Communities Research Group. The RCRG works to understand the ways rural communities respond to shifting economic and policy trajectories, especially as they involve land and natural resource use.
