Overview

Associate of Arts Degree in Geography

The Associate of Arts in Geography is a two-year Human Geography program. 

It establishes a solid base of conceptual knowledge and applied skills supporting further study in Geography, engaged citizenship, and introductory employment in the public and private sectors. 

The curriculum combines topical coursework in introductory human geography and urban geography, and lab-science courses in earth science and atmospheric science. 

The curriculum also provides students with options for focused study of a variety of regions, and develops foundational skills in using computerized Geographic Information Systems (GIS) hardware and software to analyze and present spatial data.

Geography students have a hunger to learn about the environment around them and make it a better place. 

Stimulated by a variety of subjects, they are reluctant to sacrifice breadth of inquiry in the name of specialization, and find a home in a thoroughly interdisciplinary discipline spanning the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. 

Geography students capably collect, interpret, and present qualitative, quantitative, and cartographic information, becoming members of a discipline that synthesizes and applies this knowledge to help develop solutions to real-world problems, from climate change to homelessness.
