Welcome to the Geography Department!


Geography Awareness Week

  • Geography is an interdisciplinary field of study that is well suited for understanding and solving today’s complex problems such as global and local wealth inequities, cultural diversity and demographic change, migration, climate change, environmental sustainability etc.

  • Geography is a bridge between the social and natural sciences and today has been greatly enhanced by the growth in geospatial technology tools, such as GPS (Global Positioning Systems), GIS (Geographic Information Systems), and earth imagery from platforms such as satellites and unmanned aerial systems (drones).

  • Harper’s Geography Department provides general education transfer courses and a certificate that provides marketable career skills in geospatial technologies (GPS, GIS etc.). All courses help you learn more about our dynamic world.
