|Courses in Geography|
Geography integrates physical science, social science and the humanities. The department requires that students understand both physical and human systems and develop the spatial analytical skills needed to do so. Students become proficient in the use of geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), and other mapping and image analysis techniques. Students are encouraged to take advantage of field work opportunities and study abroad programs that allow them to earn course credit while benefiting from experiential learning.
