This is a social science major just like political science, economics, psychology, or sociology. Geographers want to research and answer questions about the world we live in.
Our major gives you some flexibility. We have a few required courses, but you also have choices within the program and a free elective that can be used to take one of over 60 courses in various Academy departments, including Sosh, History, DFL, or BS&L.
We offer a lot of regional geography courses, so it's a great major for anyone interested in learning more about our world, global cultures or international issues.
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 any international field, such as the foreign service, international business, non-governmental organizations, or a full career in the Army.
