View the Semester Map for Human Geography Associate in Arts
If you think geography is all about staring at maps and memorizing state capitols, you couldn’t be more wrong. As a Human Geography student, you’ll study a wide variety of subjects: deserts in the making, the causes of many urban governmental decisions, the paths of tornadoes, and the way international trade agreements affect business in a small town. Human Geographers study how human communities function globally and locally and learn how to read future social and economic trends. Study of Human Geography will allow you to obtain your bachelor’s degree at a four-year college. If you are interested in community development, environmental protection, local government, or in working in organizations like the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Red Cross, the World Health Organization or even the World Bank, the human geography pathway is a great choice for you.
