Description of Geography
The Geography major is designed to expose students to the areas of human, regional, and physical
geography, as well as geographic techniques. In addition to studying landmasses, Geography focuses on climate,
land, sea, air, plant, mineral resources, population density, environmental changes, and how people adapt to these
things. With such diversity, geographers perform a wide variety of jobs in a wide array of geographical areas.
These might include areas such as urban and regional planning, housing and community development, business
site location, environmental analysis, climatology, resource conservation, or cartography. Students trained in
geography bring increased awareness of global issues, sensitivity to cultural differences, and an understanding of
the complexity of environmental issues on life.
