Geography serves as a bridge between the physical and social sciences. Emphasis is on the nature and distribution of environmental systems, human activities, relations between them, and their variation from place to place. Geography's uniqueness is not derived from the subject matter studied, but from the discipline's technical and methodological approach to the locational analysis of phenomena.
Students that follow the general geography pathway of study will have with the broadest choices and greatest flexibility that will serve as a firm educational foundation for liberal arts majors and students that will continue career training in graduate school. Geoarchaeology develops specialization in the exploration of past cultures and links to the natural environment. Geographic techniques build skills in cartography, computers, aerial photo interpretation, digital remote sensing, geographic information systems and science (GIS), and spatial analysis to prepare students for entry into a highly-technical and expanding job market.
A minor in geography emphasizes the processes that affect the Earth and the interaction between humans and the environment. This may include examination of the areas of meteorology, climatology, biogeography, soils, geomorphology, cultural geography, mapping and other geographic techniques.• Masters of Public Administration Concentration in GIS
