Geography Minor

The Department of Geography believes that geographic literacy is essential for the lifelong development and professional service of all the university’s students, not merely those majoring or minoring in the discipline.  We aim to provide a learning environment in which students will have structured opportunities to develop expertise in geography and to also achieve the institutional Undergraduate Learning Outcomes.

Geographic study at WOU focuses on the following learning outcomes for students:

  1. Explain important elements of geographic thought and practice.
  2. Interpret the interrelationships between people, space and place.
  3. Analyze human-environment relations.

For more information, contact the Department Chair, Dr. Mike McGlade, 503-838-8381, mcgladm@wou.edu.

Faculty: Shaun Huston ( hustons@wou.edu), Sriram Khe ( khes@wou.edu), and Mark Van Steeter ( vansetm@wou.edu).

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the Western Oregon University site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
