What is geography?
Geography is a "big picture" discipline and serves as an important bridge or liaison between the social, physical, and mathematical sciences. In other words, it incorporates aspects of many other fields such as geology, history, biology, and anthropology.
Geography is a core discipline in our campus curriculum, an attractive major in the Liberal Arts, and excellent preparation for life in a complex and fast-paced world. Geography offers important analytic tools for careers in areas such as planning, criminal justice, agriculture, environmental studies, and international affairs. Spatial data analysis, cartography, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are some of the hottest areas in the global workplace.
