Geography Department

 

Geography at BYU strengthens the geographic awareness, knowledge, and skills of our students, the University, and the community through the following activities:
  1. Providing a solid introduction to core geographic concepts and ways of creating knowledge;
  2. Providing students with skills for generating and interpreting knowledge and to ensure that geography majors complete programs with adequate skills for competing successfully in the workplace or in graduate school;
  3. Advancing the discipline of geography, especially in those areas which benefit the university, local/regional community and the worldwide church;
  4. Developing research, education, and service relationships for students and faculty with others in the university, community and the discipline.
