Geography B.A.

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 Bachelor of Arts in Geography provides students with basic geographic literacy, empowers students to explain geographic patterns and processes and allows them to be able to apply geography to solve problems.

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