Geography BA/BS Mission Statement
As the discipline that examines the spatial relationship between humans and their environment, geography is an essential element of global literacy. The Geography programs at CSU East Bay seek to further this literacy by rigorously examining, from both a physical and cultural perspective, the past and ongoing trends in local, regional and global interdependency. Our BA/BS programs provide students with a broad-based education in liberal arts and science that requires them to acquire, synthesize, and critically weigh facts and opinions concerning human habitations of Earth. Graduates of our programs are well-rounded generalists possessing basic familiarity with complex concepts and research methods fundamental to understanding human society, cultural landscapes, and the natural environment.
