Human Geography

Over the past decade, Human Geography has been one of the most popular majors at the Academy and just in the last 5 years we've graduated about 150 human geographers that are now working around the world.

Key Points about a Human Geography Major:

  • This is a social science major that will research and answer questions about the world we live in.
  • We offer regional geography courses, so it's a great major for anyone interested in learning more about our world, global cultures or international issues.
  • We have an honors sequence for cadets with high GPAs or who want to do their own geographic research.
  • This major prepares you well for careers in any international field, such as the foreign service, international business, non-governmental organizations, or a full career in the Army (Intel, Psyops, SOF, etc).
