Geography may be a popular category on the game show Jeopardy, but there's much more to this field than recognizing countries and capitals. Geography is the study of a specific area, including examining the economy, social conditions, climate and topography.

These findings are important to many career fields including:

  • Urban and regional planning
  • Business
  • Agriculture
  • Climatology
  • Meteorology
  • Cartography
  • Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
  • Government intelligence and defense
  • Natural resource management

MCC offers a wide-range of geography electives to choose from including: world geography, meteorology, GIS, economic geography and more. Some electives include field trips and working in laboratories. The GIS Internship lets you experience real-workplace requirements in this field.

Our geography discipline is built around the Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree that can transfer to a four-year institution. It provides a well-rounded general educational foundation and electric options to focus on your interests.
