University Majors

Sonoma State University
Geography B.A.

Geography is the academic discipline that bridges the natural and social sciences. Geographers study and analyze the relationships between human activities and the natural and built environment. They take a multidisciplinary approach to solving real-world problems at all spatial scales, from local to global. Thus, Geography provides students with the conceptual frameworks needed to understand the complex processes shaping the world around us. It also provides students with the skills needed to help create a more sustainable and just future. Geography at Sonoma State University has developed four concentrations, reflecting four major fields of study within the broader discipline. These study plans provide an opportunity for students to strengthen their backgrounds and to develop an expertise in these particular areas. All Geography Majors, no matter their concentration, take a range of core courses that ensure that they have a strong background in both the natural and social sciences. They also take geospatial techniques and field and laboratory methods courses that develop their research and problem-solving skills. In addition, the curriculum strengthens students` writing, critical thinking, and oral presentation skills; areas that are important for any successful career. The department`s strong intern program affords students on-the-job experience.
