The Human Geography licensure program offers a comprehensive, applicable skill set designed to understand the diversity of cultures and socio-geographic complexities found in human societies. Human geographers seek to understand how humans uniquely create, manipulate, and adapt to the places they inhabit by examining natural environments, cultural practices, and economic and political systems. Knowledge gained from the Human Geography concentration is valuable as contemporary societies are interacting globally with one another as never before. Human geographers identify and comprehend these changes and find solutions to a variety of sociocultural problems taking place. This marketable skill set is attractive to a wide range of employers in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors.

Students in the licensure program complete the Secondary Education Minor and choose an additional minor in History, Political Science, or Economics.
