Geography: For those fascinated by people and places
A study with no limits: Geographic education is
particularly powerful because it allows us to connect our intellectual
inquiry with real-world problems in a very direct way. Because of
its interdisciplinary orientation, geography allows us to see the world
in all its complexity. Geographers are observers and analysts of
space, place, and environment on scales from the local to the global. Just as one might say that historians study time, geographers study space. Discover Geography at UVM.
What will I do with a degree in geography?
It is not
unusual for geographers to be asked what it is they "do." In response,
geographers often say that we study the "why of where." We are
observers and analysts and geography is an unbounded study.
