Geography

Welcome to the Geography Information Site!

In a technological society that places greater pressures on the environment, an awareness of our impact is essential.  Geographers interpret and critically analyze ecological and human patterns to provide a sustainable future.  In so doing, students of geography are provided with the foundations to become citizens who respect the environment and one another.


Geography students are skilled in:

Problem Solving Computer Mapping Inquiry Methods
Decision Making Statistical Analysis Literary Research
Impact Analysis Field Research Writing Reports
Balancing Viewpoints Spatial Awareness Teamwork

 

 Career Opportunities:

Some jobs make direct use of geographical knowledge such as those in tourism, town planning, environmental management, location analysis, earth sciences, cartography and teaching.  Transferable skills that Geography fosters are also an asset in law, journalism, international business, real estate, economics and politics.
