Degree Description

Geography by its very nature deals with location. Geography is a field that focuses on the earth’s surface and all of the features on it and their relationship to each other. Why do groups of people settle where they do? How does their settlement location choice effect their cultural characteristics? Where are the products and resources that you use produced and how do they get to a market? How can we follow the location of human activities through mapping? These are all questions that you may investigate with the study of Geography. New technologies are advancing this field with computer applications in the areas of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Global Positioning Systems (GPS).
