Students in the undergraduate geography program at CSU are provided with a broad background in geographic thinking. We emphasize the traditional geographic focus of understanding dynamic interaction between humans and the environment with a specific emphasis of how this is affected by rapid global change.
A major and minor in Geography are degree options within the Department of Anthropology and Geography.
Geography Minor Options
The minor in Geography examines the critical interactions among space, place, people and the built and natural environment. These perspectives are used to interpret the spatial and temporal distribution of features and processes by applying spatial techniques and information technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing.
The Geographic Information Science and Geographic Analysis minor has a broad interdisciplinary application. The analytical methods introduced and the technologies used in the different courses and applied lab work are relevant to many disciplines including: urban and regional planning, marketing and business, archaeology, agriculture, conservation and engineering. This minor is designed for all students desiring to gain a background in the geographic theory, methods, tools and technical skills that will increase their employment potential in any number of applied fields where geographic analysis is a valuable skillset.
