Geography

What is Geography? Geography is the science of place and space.  Geographers ask where things are located on the surface of the earth, why they are located where they are, how places differ from one another and how people interact with their environment. West Liberty State College offers a major in geography for social science majors as well as a minor for students majoring in a wide variety of other areas of study.
