Geography as an academic discipline studies the spatial dimensions of, and links between, culture, society and environmental processes. As a student in Geography, you will understand human actions in specific regional settings, and how these actions affect the physical environments in the past, present and future. Your experience will focus on research and education related to global environmental and climate change and how this can be documented through the use of remote sensing and geographic data assimilation techniques; understanding of regional culture and development in North America, Africa, East Asia, Russia, the Caucasus, Central Asia and Latin America; and improved use of Geographical Information Science (GIScience) techniques to represent, understand, and communicate data and knowledge over a wide range of spatial scales.
You can pursue the B.A. degree which emphasizes cultural and regional geography, or the B.S. degrees which focuses on atmospheric and surface processes.
