Major Spotlight - Geography
Geography is the study of the interconnectedness of people, the physical environment, politics, globalization, governance, and the economy. Geographers are concerned with how people and the environment interact with and change one another. Students can earn either a BA or BS degree in Geography, or choose from three minors in Atmospheric Sciences, Geographic Information Science and Geography. There are five different specializations within Geography: Environment & Society, Urban, Regional, & Global Studies, Climatic Studies, Physical Geography, and Spatial Analysis. Students graduating with a geography degree can pursue graduate study or start a career in a variety of different fields, including city planning, development, logistical analysis, environmental protection and conservation, governmental policy, international security, and global aid and relief. Contact an advisor.
Student Organization Spotlight
The Collegiate Council on World Affairs (CCWA) is a group of undergraduate students devoted to enriching their understanding of international relations. Through programming that includes Model United Nations conferences, a lecture series, lunches with professors from many disciplines, and international dinner nights, students improve their public speaking skills and create long lasting friendships in a diverse and inclusive atmosphere. As the official student organization of the Political Science department, CCWA sends a team of students to compete in intercollegiate conferences across the country including Harvard, Georgetown, and the University of Pennsylvania. The club meets weekly on Tuesdays at 7:30 PM in 1080 Derby Hall. Read more.
