Geography is an integrated discipline that studies the relationships between people, places, societies, and the environments. Mount Holyoke College geography majors and minors learn about the impacts of social, economic, environmental, and political processes that shape spaces and places, the science of earth systems, the human dimensions of global environmental and climate change, and the use of geographic information science (GIS) and remote sensing techniques to represent and analyze data and knowledge at different spatial scales. All courses are designed to contribute in various ways to the College's Learning Goals and the Geography Department's Learning Goals. The requirements are below and please see the Geography chapter of the course catalog for more detailed requirements.
