"Geography is the only subject that asks you to look at the world and try to make sense of it. The field never stops being exciting because that's what geography is all about - trying to make sense of the world." Pierce F. Lewis, Professor Emeritus of Geography
Physical geographers study the natural world, focusing on issues like wildfires, floods, and tornadoes.
Human geographers study people, focusing on issues like transportation, health care, and politics.
Geographers ask the questions of Where, Why, and How. We find patterns and connections that help answer these questions. Geographers use tools (like maps, radar, satellite) and techniques (like GIS) that help explain the complex relationship between people and the natural world.
