Geography, Geography for Educators Concentration, BA


The Geography for Educators concentration combine rigorous preparation in human, physical and regional geography with course work that focuses on the cultivation of geographically-informed learners. Although its roots are found in ancient Greece, geography is an ideal way to learn about the modern world. Students of geography practice both a social science and a natural science, while learning to use mapping and geoprocessing to better understand and communicate about local, regional or global problems. As a broad, integrative discipline, geography is ideal preparation for classroom teachers, including generalists in the lower grades and social studies or earth science teachers in higher grades. Students who wish to be elementary teachers are required to double major in Elementary Education. Students should also refer to the Educator Preparation and Licensure Policies and Procedures  section of this catalog for specific licensure and major requirements.
