geography

Learning geography typically focuses on interconnections—between human beings and the natural environment, past and present, domestic and foreign realms, and rural and urban areas—all at the different scales of our existence (from local to regional, national, and global). In geography-rich interdisciplinary programs, you'll learn about local places and the larger world humans inhabit, how they define their homelands, how they engage in conflict and cooperation with each other, and how they migrate. You’ll have opportunities to study scholarly and imaginative works, develop skills in writing and research, and conduct policy research, fieldwork, and mapping.
