Geographers explore important challenges impacting society and the environment. Our students learn how to identify and solve problems facing communities, at scales ranging from local to global. The environment, people, and their connections studied in Geography are essential for understanding complex issues like social inequality, climate change, and environmental hazards.

  • Examples of what Geographers do include analyzing environmental data to identify health impacts on marginalized communities, investigating ancient climate records to understand the effects of climate change, and using satellites and drones to map human impacts on the environment.
  • Geography is the science of place and space. Geographers study where things are located on the surface of the earth, why they are located where they are, how places differ from one another, and how people interact with the natural world. Geography is unique in how it bridges the social and natural sciences to address complex, real-world problems. Geographers develop knowledge and technical skills that enable them to better understand the world and have successful careers.
