The Geography Lynk: Classroom to Career

We encourage our majors to comprehend the diversity and interconnectedness of the world’s people’s and cultures through internships and study abroad programs. Students may supplement their classroom learning with field work in local and international areas exploring the impacts of social, economic, and political processes that shape spaces and places, the science of earth systems, and the human dimensions of global environmental change.
