Why Geography?

Geography is the only discipline that looks at the Earth from a spatial perspective.  Geography includes five major themes and examines our planet – or portions thereof - in terms of location, place, the environment, movement, and regions.  Geography as a discipline is both eclectic and comprehensive and includes a myriad of areas of study including biogeography, geomorphology, hydrogeography, climatology, soils geography, behavioral geography, population geography, economic geography, historical geography and political geography.
