The Major is a blend of natural science and social science courses, so you get a broad education that will allow you to look at environmental issues from different perspectives.
You have the flexibility to choose an emphasis on the physical landscape or the atmosphere. We emphasize the interaction between humans and their environment.
You'll also take regional geography courses to learn about the cultures of other regions of the world.
We have an honors sequence for cadets with high GPAs or who want to do their own geographic research.
This major prepares you well for careers in organizations that analyze and address environmental issues or problems, as well as businesses, government agencies, or NGOs that work in the field of conservation or natural hazards.
