University Majors

California State University, Chico
Geography B.A. Physical and Environmental Geography Option

The geographer and the planner study how people create, interact with, change, and understand their physical and social environments. The Department of Geography and Planning meets the needs of students who wish to receive a broad liberal arts education focusing on global literacy; to become professionals in the field of planning (environmental, rural, urban, and community), environmental conservation and restoration, and GIS; or to prepare for teaching, business, or government careers.

The Option in Physical Geography and Environment focuses on both physical geographical processes that take place on Earth as well as human-environment relations. Drawing from the natural and social sciences, environmental and physical geographers study water politics, practices and planning; environmental degradation and restoration; applied ecological measurement, management and conservation; landscape terrain development; and global climate change processes, mitigation and adaptation. Graduates will contribute applied science solutions to support the socio-cultural and political-economic processes that govern the use and management of environmental resources.
