Geography is the study of the environments created on the earth's surface by nature and people. The physical and biological elements of these environments, as well as their economic and social structure, historical development, spatial organization, interrelationships, management and planning, form the subject matter of geography. Geography examines the spatial and temporal patterns of natural and human phenomena. A number of different programs of study are available to you as a geography undergraduate student.

Human Geography: How do people use and experience the environments they live in? What are the interrelationships between landscapes, places, people and nature? The Human Geography programs provide the opportunity to learn about the relations between landscapes, places, people and nature, and the spatial organization of human activities. While students are encouraged to explore the breadth of the discipline, we also identify courses by theme for students who wish to develop expertise in one or two subfields (e.g., urban geography, cultural and historical geography).
