Geography is a "bridge" discipline that overlaps the traditional division between the natural and the social sciences. Some courses in the department have a natural science orientation (Perspective on the Natural World and Investigative Lab designation) while others have a social science orientation (Perspective on the Individual and Society and may have a D or G designation). 101, 102 and 103 are laboratory courses which may be applied toward the Natural World requirement for graduation. 121 and 210 will carry the Individual and Society perspective. 331 and 334 will carry the G designation.
