Geography is a social science dealing with the impact people have on the world's environment. It is a liberal arts degree that can open the door to careers in public agencies, planning agencies, public health and geographic information systems (GIS).
Our geography courses leading to a bachelor's degree cover a wide range of topics. Some delve into problems facing our planet, such as global warming, pollution and natural resource management. We also have a series of mapping courses and a Geographic Information System Lab.
Graduates in our program have attained positions with government agencies and private businesses. We have had others go into advanced studies in park management, meteorology, medicine and urban planning.
