Geography Knows No Boundaries

Image credit:  Yamane, Kae. "Thinking about hazards in context." 2016."Geography is a broad and exciting subject where students apply a variety of critical and technical skills to understand our world. Majors specialize in one of three tracks: (1) Global Culture, Economics, and Society; (2) Environment; or (3) Geographical Techniques. Because it is such a diverse field, a degree in Geography prepares undergraduates for work in many different directions depending on the ways students tailor their focus. Graduates of our program have careers in environmental agencies, government service, regional and city planning, international humanitarian aid, private sector business, and have pursued graduate degrees. Geography is a subject that will deepen your knowledge about the spatial dimensions of life on Earth, through looking at the climate, the physical landscape, the human relationship to environmental concerns, and global social, political, and economic systems.
