The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or minor in geography is the bridge between the physical and cultural worlds. Geographers observe and measure the human use of the earth to better understand our changing environment, society and culture.
Students learn about the location of places and their physical and cultural characteristics and place historical and current events in the context of where they happen. The study of the development of people, ideas, places and environments across time helps degree candidates gain insights into our global interdependence.
Grow in the understanding of basic physical systems that affect our lives every day: sun, water cycles, wind and ocean currents and movement of the Earth. Understand more about how human and physical systems have affected the surface of the planet. See the relationships between the structure of the Earth and society.
Geography is ideal for students who have:
- Observant, detailed-oriented and creative minds
- Comfort using computers
- Interest in the Earth and its people
- Eagerness to travel and learn more about global interdependence
