About Geography

Geographers study the world from a spatial perspective, emphasizing the importance of space, place, landscape and environment to relations and processes both within and between human and natural worlds. As an academic field, geography ranges across the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. With geography, you can pursue questions about culture, politics, society, economics and the physical environment. Geography is also an applied discipline. Studying geography is a foundation for doing practical work in mapping, cartography and Geographic Information Systems. Geography can also be preparation for other field-oriented careers and vocations, including urban and regional planning and natural resource management. Above all, studying geography provides a basis for life-long learning and a rich life, not just economically and academically, but culturally and socially.
