Professor Andrew Shaw Goudie (born 1945) is Master of St Cross College, Oxford, England.

Goudie is a geographer at the University of Oxford specialising in desert geomorphology, dust storms, weathering, and climatic change in the tropics. He has also known for his teaching and best-selling textbooks on human impacts on the environment. He is the author, co-author, editor, or co-editor of thirty-nine books (many of which have appeared in numerous editions) and around two hundred papers published in learned journals. He combines research and some teaching with administrative roles.

Goudie was born at Cheltenham on 21 August 1945. He was educated at Dean Close School and Trinity Hall, Cambridge (BA first class with distinction 1967, MA, PhD 1972). In 2002 he was awarded the degree of Doctor of Science by the University of Oxford.

He has been working at the University of Oxford since 1970. In 1976 he was appointed Fellow of Hertford College. He was appointed Professor of Geography in 1984 and was head of the School of Geography from 1984 until 1994. From 1995 until 1997, he was President of the Oxford Development Programme and Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the university. He became Master of St Cross College in 2003.

In 1970, he was elected a Member of the Institute of British Geographers (of which he was later a member of Council) and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. He was Honorary Secretary of the Royal Geographical Society from 1980 until 1988 and has been a Vice President of the Society. In 1991 the Society awarded him its Founders' Medal. In the same year he was awarded the Mungo Park Medal by the Royal Scottish Geographical Society. In 2002 he was honoured by The Royal Academies for Science and the Arts of Belgium. He has been President of the Geographical Association and of the International Association of Geomorphologists. He has served as a Delegate to Oxford University Press.
