The Department of Geography provides a comprehensive program that reflects the discipline's three main areas – human geography, physical geography, and geospatial analysis. The department's courses allow students to explore the linkages between human activities and natural systems. Students taking geography courses should develop factual knowledge, critical thinking, and analytic skills. Training in geography allows students to know where things are located, why they are located where they are, how and why places differ, how human activity shapes and is shaped by the natural environment, and how to analyze human-environment interactions.
