PART OF THE SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY AND SUSTAINABILITY FLIGHT PATH

Minor: Geography
(GEOG)

Geography isn't just about knowing your way around a map. It's about knowing your way around our ever-changing world. The Department of Geography features faculty and students researching and teaching about the mixture of societal and natural forces that characterize places and regions. Such forces include cutting-edge societal issues, land use, conflict, migration, climate change, environmental justice, water resources, and globalization. In addition, geographers synthesize these patterns using spatial data science and cartography. Students in this minor experience the breadth across Geography's subfields: human and biophysical geography and GIScience.

 
TOP FIVE REASONS TO STUDY Geography
  1. Develop critical thinking skills to understand issues facing our world.

  2. Understand the interaction between human and biophysical systems.

  3. Learn the value of a spatial approach to understand issues shaping our world.

  4. Understand how processes at local to global scales interact to shape places.

  5. Practice what you learn through hands-on engagement in the field.
