The Geography Associate in Arts for Transfer (AAT) degree focuses on the world’s physical and social processes. Geography is one of the most broad and applicable disciplines in academia because it includes both the social and physical sciences. Students learn about the most contemporary and pressing issues facing the world today including global warming and climate change, natural disasters, health of ecosystems, renewable and non-renewable resources, immigration, global conflicts and terrorism, forms of power, inequality and justice, local and global politics and economics, urban development, and processes of race, class, gender, sexuality, and religion. While Geography majors may go on to specialize in a specific area of Geography, the AAT provides students with a foundational understanding of the main systems and processes that interact to produce and maintain our physical and social world as well as the tools to study them, including GIS (Geographic Information Systems). Students will be prepared to complete a baccalaureate degree in Geography and, subsequently, pursue an exceptionally wide range of careers in education, research, planning, environmental consulting, GIS, international relations, and government.
