Introduction

Geography is the science of place and space, Geographers ask 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 environment. Geography links the social sciences and natural sciences together, studying the relationships between human activity and natural systems.

Why Consider a Geography Minor?

Are you curious about the world, and its physical and human dimensions? Do you love maps? Are you comfortable with spatial problem solving?
