Geography is the study of Earth's landscapes, peoples, places and environments. It is about the world in which we live. Geography is divided into two main branches: human geography and physical geography. There are additional branches in geography such as regional geography, cartography, and integrated geography.
Geography provides a broad training and education for students who wish to enter a range of careers as diverse as land development, transportation management and cartography. A degree in geography can lead to becoming an environmental consultant, planning and development surveyor, city planner or surveying and mapping technician.
