Faculty: Nicholas “Max” Handler, Chris Vanneson (PY)

Geography is an integrating and synthesizing discipline. It is a bridge uniting the social and physical sciences, focusing on the patterns of distribution.

The Geography department offers courses which introduce students to the physical and cultural systems of the environment. These courses are basic for those who are planning to major in geography, elementary and secondary education, regional and urban planning, environmental studies, government, international trade, business, transportation, law, and many other areas. Geography is a useful area of study for those who are interested in regional analysis, market analysis, resource analysis, regional development, urban growth, economic growth, and cartographic skills, as well as Geographic Information Systems.
