The study of Geography goes well beyond the scope of physical positions of cities and states. Geography encompasses a vast array of disciplines that consider not only physical location, but social implications, cartography and mapping, the environment and other closely related subjects. Geography helps you appreciate the world as a whole better. To get a full understanding, you must study the human as well as physical geography, including culture, history, religion, language and more.

Graduates of a Geography program can work in a wide range of fields, and covering many scientific disciplines. The U.S. government employs many types of geographers, for everything from meteorology and GPS navigation, to military intelligence and disaster relief . Work is also available in the public or private sector and engaged in careers that are closely related to the field of study, such as urban planning, surveyor, conservation, exploration or geographic information systems (GIS).
