The Geography Department offers courses in human, physical, and world geography, and a range of courses in Geographic Information Science (GIS). Human geography explores the effects of social, economic, environmental, political, and demographic change from a geographic perspective. Physical geography asks why the natural environment looks and acts the way it does and addresses the interrelationships between climate, soils, water, landforms, and the biosphere. World geography offers a country-by-country study of the world from many perspectives: social, economic, political, etc.. We also offer many regional courses (Latin America, Africa, Asia) and methods courses (geographical analysis, remote sensing, geography for business and planning). Through our Center for Applied Geographic Information Science (GIS Lab), we offer a robust academic program for students to become adept in GIScience.
Many of our courses fulfill one or more requirements in the University's Core Curriculum. See our selections for current and upcoming courses.
