Geography - BS

Being fundamentally interdisciplinary, the Department of Geography offers exciting opportunities to explore the physical and human environment in the field, laboratory, and classroom. Students engage with faculty to examine the physical, environmental, cultural, economic, political, and social processes that drive our world.

This Bachelor of Science degree requires coursework taken in Geography, including a set of foundational courses followed by upper-level courses in Human Geography, Geography of the Natural Environment, Human-Environment Interactions, or Geographic Information Science and Technology. The degree offers the flexibility to explore double majors and minors in complementary fields.

Using geospatial methods, geography graduates are uniquely skilled to draw connections between human and physical processes, providing them career options in government agencies, industries, and businesses aimed at social services, research, natural resources, and spatial analysis. Geographers also often work in education, development, and private consulting.
