At Geneseo, you’ll join a community committed to inquiry, creativity, and reflection. You’ll inquire whenever your work engages with meaningful questions about the world around us, create whenever you apply the skills you’ve learned in the classroom to new situations, and reflect whenever you make connections between your academic work and your personal goals and dreams.
Geneseo’s academic programs will ask you to continuously reflect on your learning, your future plans, and your place in the world. Our Mission, Vision, and Values will help guide you; our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion will help you find your place in our community; and our Geneseo Learning Outcomes for Baccalaureate Education will help you build a portfolio of skills that are essential in the 21st century. You’ll be empowered to tell the story about how your Geneseo experience reflects our common mission “to advance knowledge and inspire students to be socially responsible and globally aware citizens who are prepared for an enriched life and success in the world.”

The course introduces students to geographical field observation as they examine the human-environment interactions and adaptations in Southern Alberta and British Columbia.
