What will I learn?

Geography is the science of space and place. Geographers study spatial distributions and relations within Earth’s human-environment systems, incorporating historic and contemporary human activities within the context of the biophysical and cultural environments, and the emergence of humanity as one of the major agents of change on Earth. The geography program exposes students to many of the tools and technologies employed by earth science professionals, including Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS).

The Associate in Arts Degree in Geography provides for a liberal education and prepares one for positions in business, government, environmental consulting, resource management, teaching, the technology sector, and service in foreign areas.

Learning Outcomes

  • Describe and assess Earth’s physical processes and their impacts on human culture and activities.
  • Describe and assess human cultural and economic activities and their impacts on Earth’s physical environment.
  • Identify and implement the methods and technologies used in geographic spatial analysis (ex. GIS, remote sensing, spatial statistics, cartography and map analysis).
