What will I learn?

Geography courses leading to a Bachelor's Degree cover a wide range of topics including many of the most significant problems facing our planet today - global warming, pollution, and natural resource management. We also have a series of mapping courses and a Geographic Information System Lab.

Geography faculty members are available to discuss what a graduate can do with a degree or even several classes in geography. Study of geography is a solid liberal arts foundation for people wanting to go into a variety of occupation-specific training programs.

Our graduates have gone on to positions with government agencies and private businesses that deal with geographic information systems, planning and research. Our students have also become teachers by incorporating geography into their social studies secondary education certification. Other alumni have chosen to continue their studies in graduate programs in geography and other fields like park management, meteorology, medicine, and urban planning.
