Department Description

Geography’s ancient intellectual heritage persists today as we continue to examine the complexities and interrelationships of the world’s physical and cultural systems. Geography functions as a synthesizing discipline, providing a “bridge” between the physical and social sciences. We strive to perpetuate this long-standing objective by providing classes which investigate both the physical and cultural world. Geography students are taught to think in spatial terms, considering where physical and cultural phenomena are located, why they occupy this space, and the implications of these patterns.



Our courses are designed to fulfill several purposes, one of which is to:

--Prepare prospective teachers in geographic fundamentals to facilitate teaching those fundamentals to their students.
