Geography & the Environment

Geography is the study of places, landscapes and human-environment interactions. Geographers address important questions concerning environmental change, economic development, globalization, human population growth, migration, land-use change, and geopolitics. Geographers also develop sophisticated technological tools to examine Earth's diverse landscapes and environments.
