 Why take Geography?

Geography is an important area of study to understand the world, its processes and patterns, and major issues.  Many employers today are looking for people with knowledge of the larger world system and with the transferable geotechnology skills learned in this subject.  Students who take geography develop critical thinking skills, research skills, communication skills,  and learn to appreciate the Earth’s systems and resources.  We have also participated in several trips to Europe in the past.
