Geography is an integrative discipline that helps us understand the nature of the world and the human place within it by studying the interaction between people and natural environments, the processes that shape that interaction, and the connections between people and places, particularly the interaction needed for human survival. The geography department at MU is small, yet its faculty is involved in a wide range of research. That means students are, too. The program is structured to give students the skills they will need if they want to work as professional geographers—skills that apply to other fields. They are the basic skills of observation, speculation, analysis, interpretation, and communication.
