Geography is making a comeback. As our opportunities for travel increase and as communications around the world improve, we are becoming more aware of other nations and other cultures. We are learning more about geography, the study of our relationship to the earth.

Geographers have a great sensitivity and appreciation for our world-not just as a source of life but as a living entity in and of itself.

Students in geography at SFCC study the earth's cultural and physical attributes; its economic geography; and its hurricanes, glaciers, climate, food chains, voicanism, species extinction and pollution.

Field trips are common. They have included trips to Mt. St. Helens, mining areas, bird sanctuaries and the Columbia Ice Fields.

Jobs in geography range from teaching and urban planning to environmental protection and hydrology to forestry and game management.
