About Geography

Become a Geographer

Geography students at Sacramento State explore Earth's natural and cultural landscapes with emphasis on the human-environment interface, such as climate change, resource degradation, urban growth and design, globalization, immigration, and ethnic and territorial conflict.

Our B.A. in Geography features balanced preparation in physical and human geography, geographic skills and techniques, and regional study. Students are encouraged to pursue independent research projects, and majors display their geographic knowledge and skills via senior research projects (GEOG 190).
