Geography is the study of the earth, including the distribution and interconnectedness of all natural and cultural phenomena, and how places are particular expressions of nature and culture. Students may take courses to prepare for a major in geography or to fulfill general education requirements.
Career options include teaching and research, natural resource management, meteorology (weather), cartography (map-making), urban/regional planning, location analysis, and work using Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
