Students typically focus their education in one of four areas:
- physical geography
- mapping sciences
- human geography
Physical geographers study patterns of climates, land forms, vegetation, soils, and water.
Mapping scientists use many tools and techniques in their work, and geographic technologies are increasingly among the most important emerging fields for understanding our complex world. They include Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Remote Sensing, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and online mapping such as Google Earth.
Human geography is concerned with the spatial aspects of human existence.
Anthropologists study humankind, past and present, pulling in expertise in fields ranging from biology to sociology.
The Geography programme is offered at Louisiana State University.
