The goal of this major is to train students to analyze global issues like a geographer, that is, to take the physical processes and/or human interactions of the Earth and integrate them over space and time. Geography will prepare students to use knowledge about global, physical, and human patterns and process them to critically analyze and solve current geographical issues, including global warming, conservation, globalization, terrorism, and technology advances. This program fosters scientific, cultural, and technological literacies that will prepare geography students to think and act with professional, personal, civic, and social responsibility in the 21st century.
A geography major requires 37-43 total credits for a Bachelor of Science.
In addition to the Bachelor of Science requirements, students must complete nine supplemental credits in a foreign language for a Bachelor of Arts degree.
