An awareness of landscape plus the investigation of economic, physical, and cultural processes that influence the landscape are integral parts of study in Geography. Factors included in the analysis of world and regional geography are location and structure of settlements, cultural influences, atmospheric processes, water resources, landforms, and climatic regions. Sample courses include Human Geography, Physical Geography, Environmental Geography, and World Regional Geography. Geography provides excellent preparation for advanced studies in environmental studies, economics, economic development, city and regional planning, tourism and recreation, landscape architecture, and cartography.
