Geography is concerned with natural and human phenomena in the environment. It spans the social and physical sciences and applies this knowledge to resource assessment and environmental management.

Human Geography considers the economic structure of cities, demographic changes and the effects of social policies. Physical Geography studies spatial and environmental phenomena, environmental conservation and the management of resources (water, soil, coasts, atmosphere and ecology).
