Geography is the study of the social, environmental and locational processes that create diversity from place to place on the earth's surface.

Through the formal study of geography, students develop a perspective that helps to explain the reasons for and the significance of local, regional and world patterns and analyzes the role of locational factors in human affairs.

All emphasis areas provide the opportunity for directed independent study and actual experience as interns.

Geography facilities include a geographic information science laboratory. A large, well-organized map collection is available in Michener Library.
