Overview

Geography offers a broad liberal arts curriculum. As our world changes daily, geography enables us to understand the role of people in the settlement of the earth. Geographic literacy takes different forms, ranging from knowing the location of countries on a map to understanding why the Middle Eastern countries continue to quarrel over Israel's existence and other political conflicts of the like. 

Curriculum

In the Geography degree at University of Central Oklahoma, students develop their ability to thinking spatially and their geographic literacy. Regional geography courses provide students with a regional specialization (Europe, Oklahoma, etc.) while the topical geography courses explore a variety of subject matters, such as environmental conservation, economic systems, migration and urbanization. Students in our program also learn to use geo-technologies, which are very much in demand.
