BA in Geography


Geography is the study of places on Earth and their relationships with each other.  It can also be defined as an integrated study of people, places, and environments.  It includes both physical and human approaches.

Geography employs a spatial perspective to analyze the interactions between humans and their environment.  Geography is more than identifying locations or knowing about world regions.  It is a unique discipline concerned with space and place, nature and society.

The department has as its mission through the B.A. in Geography to provide students with a basic geographic literacy; to empower students to explain geographic patterns and processes; and to be able to apply geography to solve problems.

The B.A. degree seeks to prepare students for careers in many fields, including business, public service, teaching, and for further study in graduate and professional schools.
