Physical Geography

Physical Geography is a great major for anyone interested in environmental issues, the natural landscapes, resource studies, environmental conflict, or global environmental change.
Key Points about an Physical Geo Major:
  • The Major 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.
  • 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.
