Geographers study places, natural and human-altered landscapes, and processes by which people make their livelihoods and give their lives meaning. In so doing, people create and modify their environments. The Geography Program at Western emphasizes the study of human geography, while providing background in sciences that improve our understanding of the natural environment through courses offered by other disciplines.
A minor in Geography complements a major in many other disciplines, including Biology, Business Administration, Economics, English, Environmental Studies, Geology, History, Political Science, Psychology and Sociology.
