Geography is a broad and exciting subject that allows students to learn a variety of critical and technical skills and ways to understand the spaces of our world. Geography majors at Rutgers approach spatial phenomena by specializing in one of three tracks:
- Global Culture, Economics, and Society
- Geographical Techniques
Because it is such a diverse field representing multiple interests, a degree in Geography at Rutgers prepares undergraduates for work in many different directions depending on the ways students tailor their focus within the three tracks.
Graduates of the Geography program of Rutgers University have continued on in careers with environmental agencies, government service, regional and city planning, international humanitarian aid, private sector business, and have pursued graduate degrees in Geography and related fields. Geography is a subject that will deepen your knowledge about the spatial dimensions of life on Earth, through looking at the climate and the physical landscape, the human relationship to environmental concerns, as well as global social, political, and economic systems.
