Geography

If you’ve traveled even a little, you know that culture is different everywhere you go. Communities, economies and politics vary with a place’s physical environment, climate and natural resources.

When you study geography, you bring the social and natural sciences together to explore the connections between people and places. In doing so, you sharpen your understanding of local, regional and world dynamics in a way that’s increasingly important in our ever-more global society.

At St. Norbert College, you may take elective courses in geography as part of your liberal arts education.
