About

Geography is the study of distributions, patterns and movements across space, both physical and social. Human geographers study the geographic patterns of various human activities: economic, political and cultural. The Geography program is offered by The Ohio State University.

Overview

Possible careers

The ability of the graduates of the Geography program from The Ohio State University to analyze and to integrate various aspects of Earth’s human and physical environments makes them attractive candidates for positions with planning and development agencies at the federal, state and local levels. Retail chains, financial institutions, insurance companies, real estate and industrial firms employ geographers to collect and analyze data that relate to the firm’s production and distribution of goods and services, or they may employ geographers to identify appropriate locations for new or expanded facilities. 

Graduates from the E&S specialization have a variety of career options including working for environmental and protection agencies, state Departments of Natural Resources and Conservation, and for a range of nonprofit agencies working both in the United States and overseas in areas of environmental protection, development and the protection of indigenous ways of life. 

There are numerous high-paying jobs, with private companies and governmental agencies, for students with training in computer-based cartography and the use of geographic information systems. This is a major growth area. Students in the CPG specialization have job opportunities in the recently modernized National Weather Service, with private forecasting firms or in television. 

Programme Structure

Course Overview:

  • The geography program requires that students complete all courses in their major track with a grade of C- or higher, with an average GPA of C. 
  • All specializations require at least 10 courses. Students in the URGS or E&S specialization earn a Bachelor of Arts, and students in the CPG or SA specialization earn a Bachelor of Science. 
  • These latter Bachelor of Science tracks require the completion of the calculus series (Mathematics 1151 and 1152), and the CPG specialization should also take additional mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer programming courses.
