Geography

Geography describes and explains the locations, distributions, and interrelationships of all surface features, both physical and human/cultural. The purpose of the degree is to develop geographic literacy—a critical understanding of the planet. Defined as a spatial science, geography is the study of places, where those places are in relation to other places and features on earth, and the relationships between people and their environments. An understanding of geography is crucial to long term progress and sustainability, especially in our increasingly interconnected world.
