Answers to why we study geography

Geography is the bridge between the sciences and the humanities and is most helpful in both major areas.

Geography is the most broad of all disciplines. There is a geographical component to everything else that can be studied. One definition of geography is "everything from the tip of your nose outward." I think it's important to be able to understand all of that. Don't you?

Another way to think about it is that there are three important "W" questions in geography:
What is where? Why is it there? Why do I care?

Geography is the study of location and place. Everything has a location, and there are patterns to places. Location and place dictate how we as humans interact with each other and with the environment that surrounds us. Politics, history, religion, society, medicine, economics, science, art, language, ideas... all are influenced by geography is ways that are obvious and ways that are subtle. Geography is the attempt to understand the "big picture" of it all.

That's why it's important to study geography.

Geography supplies information you need to function in your world. You can learn about the strengths and weaknesses of your own area. Geography helps to explain cultural and population differences. Geography shows where the rest of the world is and how close or far it is from you. Search the origin of the meter to see what geography can be.
