Geography is one of the few disciplines that comfortably bridges the liberal arts and sciences. Geography is the ideal major for students interested in solving real-world environmental and social problems. The program provides students with the skills and academic framework needed to help create a more sustainable and just future. Students who complete the program are well prepared to advance to graduate school or to enter the work world where they are increasingly likely to find rewarding jobs. Geographers work in a variety of fields including urban and regional planning, climatology, transportation, resource management, marketing, natural hazards, tourism, international business, government agencies and non-governmental organizations. The demand for geographical information science skills is increasing in all areas of the economy. According to the US Dept. of Labor, geospatial technologies are one of the top three areas of job growth in the next decade.
