Geography is concerned with interpreting physical and human patterns on the earth's surface. Geographers study patterns of physical and cultural phenomena - the science can be viewed as a bridge between the social and natural sciences. Geographers can specialize in the study of certain phenomena or combine both within a specific region. At WIU, students can choose to concentrate on computer cartography, remote sensing, and geographic information systems.
Career opportunities are found in government agencies, economic and environmental consulting firms, mapping and aerial survey companies, climatological consulting firms, and environmental engineering firms.
