Geography & Global Studies

Are you interested in developing your understanding of Planet Earth? Have you ever wondered how geography impacts culture, economics, and the connections humans have to the environment? In this FIGS, you will learn more about our globalized world as you explore both natural and human-altered systems. We will explore the vast dimensions of geography from urban planning to threats to biodiversity, and by the end of the course, you will have a newfound appreciation for the “science of where.” You will also be introduced to research opportunities and career options available for geography majors. Come network with other students and faculty and find out how Rutgers resources can help you have a successful future as a global citizen.
