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.
