Awareness and appreciation of the geographic dimensions of society.
The vision of the Department of Geography is to be recognized for excellence in teaching and scholarship, and graduating students who are critical thinkers with a keen awareness and appreciation of the geographic dimensions of society.
Towards this vision, the department considers its mission to:
- Offer a rigorous disciplinary structure for students to major or minor in geography;
- Provide undergraduate students with geographic education within the context of the Liberal Arts Core Curriculum (LACC);
- Support, and assist in the development of, undergraduate and graduate programs throughout the university by offering relevant geography courses for those programs.

- Why things are located where they are
- How places differ from one another, and
- How people interact with the environment
