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.
