The discipline of geography is broadly based in earth sciences and humanities as well as in the social sciences. Geographers pursue research and teaching in areas as diverse as geomorphology, hydrology, transportation, urban planning, cultural ecology, and human-environment relationships and pre-history. The geography curricula will appeal to undergraduates seeking a general yet practical University education. Geographers find employment in such career fields as resource management, urban and regional planning, and environmental assessment, as well as in the traditional occupations of elementary and secondary school teaching.  Students are urged to discuss and plan course selection with the Coordinator.
