Geography is an exciting and dynamic discipline that involves the study of people, places and earth processes from a spatial perspective.

As a modern physical and social science, geography plays a crucial role in addressing local, national and global concerns such as resource management, air and water pollution, low income housing, population growth and climate change. A geography degree offers students the opportunity to tackle complex social and environmental problems with a skill set that emphasizes a combination of critical thinking and hands-on solutions to positively impact people's lives.

The Department of Geography, History, and Political and International Studies offers:

  1. Major in Geography leading to a B.A. degree
  2. Concentration in Geography
  3. Minor in Geography
