Our undergraduate program offers both minor and major (BA) options.
Undergraduate students study the fascinating interactions between human beings and the physical environment. They obtain a holistic understanding of the world and fieldwork/research tools that can be applied to a wide range of local, national, and international career opportunities including environmental planning, natural resource management, and social policy development.
Our program offers three interrelated themes of study:
- Environmental geography which engages students in a systematic study of the Earth’s physical nature and human activities that change it.
- Human geography which focuses on cultural, economic, environmental, and political processes that shape the human experience and sense of place.
- Geospatial technology which includes the use of cartography, geographic information systems (GIS), and remote sensing science to support research into environmental and societal issues.
