Geoography

In Geography you will study human use of, and interaction with the Earth and the identification of spatial and temporal variation in natural and human processes. Geography uses principles of mathematics, social science, and natural science to analyze and interpret change in the environment. Geographers study globalization and cultural diversity, develop and apply geospatial technologies, and help evaluate and manage resources, climate change, and environmental hazards.
