You’ve heard the saying, “there’s a time and a place for everything”. Well, half of that saying is geography! Geographers strive to answer the important questions -- where are the best beaches for spring break? Where are valuable minerals found? Where are migrants moving from?

Geography is a combination of physical earth sciences and social sciences. From volcanic mountains to flat flood-prone plains, the Earth’s natural processes create diverse natural landscapes. Throughout these courses, you’ll explore how humans interact with these landscapes and create diverse societies.

Geographers work in a broad range of fields including environmental science, politics, economics, transportation, and medical fields. Whatever your final degree may be, geography courses at SFCC are an excellent foundation for many careers.

You and your advisor will use this program map as a starting point in creating your own personal education plan, customized to your needs and goals.
