Division of Liberal Arts

The Division of Liberal Arts supports the university’s mission through the Geography program. Geography is the study of the character and importance of places. It examines how places are different, how they interact, and how they are integrating in today’s shrinking world. The physical environment is studied as the base for understanding the human world and its behavior patterns. It draws from many disciplines including anthropology, political science, history, sociology, economics, geology, meteorology, and soil science in producing a synthesized picture of the world.
