Study your minor in Geography at King's
Explore the relationship between humans and the natural environment and the spatial distributions of cities, industry, religions, and culture. Learn about the spatial location and movement of biophysical landscapes and human features on the earth's surface by asking questions like 'Where is it?" "Why is it there?" "How does it relate to other locations?"
Geography at King's is an exciting interdisciplinary field that spans natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. It has something to offer every kind of imagination. The program explores the origins of earth's major systems including geological, hydrological, and global climate systems and investigates the processes that influence the characteristics of landforms, vegetation, and soils. Geography is especially interested in how physical phenomena (climate, rivers, coastlines) affect human activities and how humans modify the earth’s surface (cities, agriculture, dams).
The Geography program also offers a GIS course, which is an applications-based course focusing on spatial problem solving, data input, and data manipulation using GIS software.
King's does not offer a major in Geography; however, students interested in Geography may want to check out our Environmental Studies program.
