Course info

Summary

Students earning the B.A. degree in Geosciences must choose one of two concentrations: either Geography or Urban Studies.

Geography

Focusing on the interdisciplinary study of the human and physical world. As the Association of American Geographers describes, human geography examines “spatial aspects of human existence,” while physical geography examines patterns of climates, landforms, vegetation, soils, and water.

Urban Studies

Focusing on interdisciplinary study of the unique environmental and human challenges and solutions in urban settings and communities using one or more methods from geosciences and other fields such as social sciences.

Career Opportunities

An undergraduate degree in geosciences affords someone many opportunities for employment in both the public sector and the private sector. Geographers generally find employment as cartographers, city/regional planners, conservationists, environmental managers, environmental regulators, Geographic Information System (GIS) specialists, historic preservationists, location analysts, and as physical scientists working for the government. In addition, with the diversity of their liberal arts training, geographers also qualify for professional management positions as well as more traditional work as teachers.
