Geography is the study of the Earth as home to humanity. This bridges the human and physical sciences. Geographers also work with powerful technologies such as geographic information systems (GIS), digital Earth imagery and spatial simulation. And they're not afraid to get their boots muddy! Geography has a long-standing field tradition, often involving travel to spectacular and exotic locations in the world - some of them in our own backyard.
Geographers use a holistic, integrative perspective to help solve complex 21st century challenges such as climate change, globalization, sustainability, urbanization, and living with hazards. Rewarding careers exist in the private and public sectors, and education.
