    Humans are naturally curious about different places and what makes them unique. Geography courses allow us to study the physical characteristics of places and environments in which humans interact. Come explore the world’s surfaces and learn about:

    • The importance of a location
    • Interpreting how people live in particular places
    • Deciphering the complexities of environments
  • Geography courses can help satisfy the general education requirements for an Associate in Arts transfer degree. You can find the requirements for about 250 university majors and track your progress toward completion through the A.A. transfer evaluation tool on Florida Virtual Campus.
