Why Geography?

Geography is how the world works. Geography explores the physical Earth, our interactions with it, and how through the interactions among and between people and the environment, in the context of space, we shape our world, perceptions, and lives. Geography is rooted in understanding the sense of place that permeates human existence, how this sense is informed by the patterns and processes of the physical and human worlds, and in turn influences the fundamental processes of our society. Studying geography will provide you with a unique perspective cultivated from the integration of technical geospatial skills, an understanding of major world regions and their interactions, a dynamic education gained through high-impact experiences, and insightful thinking through which you can gain critical insights that will help you excel in business, education, planning, environmental analysis, natural resource management, and applied research within the increasingly complex and interdisciplinary global economy and society. Why Geography? It is one of only a few interdisciplinary majors that will serve you in any endeavor you choose to pursue.
