The Department of Geography offers a major and minor in geography, as well as a geographic information systems (GIS) minor and a concentration area in GIS. The GIS minor is well-adapted to majors in the physical and social sciences, including education, biology, environmental studies/environmental science, and business.
The department promotes active research, internships, student research grants, collaboration between faculty and students and service learning. Geography students gain a solid foundation in geographic principles and techniques, as well as a deeper understanding of how the interactions between people and the environment shape the landscapes we inhabit.
With foundations in both the natural and social sciences, geography prepares students for a wide range of careers in government, the private sector, and education.
