Why Geography?

Geography is one of the few disciplines that comfortably bridges the social sciences, biophysical sciences and the humanities through its holistic approach to studies. Geography programs offer international and integrative perspectives on the relations among social, economic, and biophysical processes that affect interconnections between people, environments and places on the earth's surface.

There are many specializations for students interested in pursuing a degree in Geography. Each specialization is designed to provide students with the training necessary to enter careers in their field. For students who are interested in Geography but are completing a major in another discipline, we offer several minor options. Students can either follow a general Geography minor or pursue more structured minors in the specializations listed above. Geography majors can also take a different geographic specialty for minor.
