BA - Geography - Urban and Regional Planning

Program Number: 0567

Geography is the study of place in the same way that history is the study of time. Geographers look at the ways that phenomena are distributed in different locations, the ways they are connected, and the ways they combine to make individual places unique. The things geographers study are diverse, from climate and landforms to cultural and economic patterns. Geography is both a natural science and a social science, and geographers look for interactions between the physical environment and the human use of the earth. For this reason geography is also very much involved with environmental studies, including resource management and planning.

Geography at Edinboro encompasses a range of courses in regional and topical specialties that lead to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography. Students choose to either pursue a traditional geography degree or concentrate in either environmental studies or urban / regional planning.
