Is geography all about knowing state capitals and which is the largest lake in the world? (It’s the Caspian Sea, by the way.) No – it’s so much more! Geography is the study of Earth's environments, landscapes, people, and places. It includes natural science (physical geography), social science (human geography), and geospatial science (GIScience). Geographers collect, analyze, and display spatial information, and apply the concepts and theory of geography to explore social and environmental questions. Come explore all that an undergraduate geography degree at Oregon State has to offer, either on campus or via Ecampus.
