About Geography

Geography is a field of study that ranges across the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Subfields address aspects of both human and natural worlds. With geography, you can pursue questions about culture, politics, society, economics and the environment. Geography is also a technical field. Studying geography is a foundation for doing practical and applied work in mapping and cartography and Geographic Information Systems, as well as in a variety of field-oriented careers and vocations. Above all, studying geography provides a basis for life-long learning and a rich life, not just economically and academically, but culturally and socially.
