Geography Courses

Geography is the study of where things and people are and how they came to be there. Geographers inquire about the interplay of human societies and physical environments. They address some of the world’s most urgent challenges: Who grows your food? How do globalization and environmental changes affect you? How do businesses make location decisions? How is identity linked to where people live and work? Can growth be managed? Are maps political? Geography’s contribution to these public issues and solutions is spatial analysis and accountability to place. Students of geography find careers in the education, business, government, and non-profit sectors, some through majoring in Geographic Information Science (GIS).
