Geography is the study of the changing processes and patterns that shape the Earth’s surface, mold its environments, and make the places in which we live, and how human systems, institutions, and practices in turn remake the earth, alter its climatic and bio-physical processes, shape its landscapes, and create the built environment around us.  Geography students participate in our faculty and peer mentoring programs, they can join our student research (see undergraduate research page here) or service learning activities, engage with faculty and other researchers in the classroom, laboratory, and through fieldwork, or join the Geography Club. Undergraduates in Geography learn the science of earth systems, how to study and apply the effects of social, economic, and political processes in shaping social spaces and nature, and how to use mapping, GIS, GPS, remote sensing, and other geographic information techniques. Many geography students pursue careers in research, teaching, environment policy, international development, or public service.
