Geography is a discipline that integrates many topics in an attempt to gain a more holistic, ethical and other oriented understanding of the various systems of the Earth. Through the study of Geography students will develop a sense of stewardship for the Earth, using their understanding of environments, people and places to become effective workers in the preservation of the natural order. Simply put, the purposes of this course are:
- To focus on the relationship between people, places, and resources
- Help you understand the interconnections between your actions on a daily basis, and their impact on creation
- Help you analyze a more ethical and balanced stance on the environment, conservation and, generally, stewardship of the entire natural order
- Increase your understanding of Earth's physical processes
