Geography, BS


Department: Geography 

A major or minor in geography can provide a student with a way to examine the world with objectivity. Students can be trained to analyze the water-use and land-use opportunities in their communities, to understand the interrelated systems that keep the land and sea resources in balance, and to appreciate the varied ways in which people all over the world use those resources.
