Geography Major at UW Oshkosh
Geographers study the linkages between human activity & natural systems. 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 & how people interact with the environment and each other.
The Urban Planning Major
Improving the communities where we live and work is the primary goal of the Planning profession. Urban Planners work with community members, public officials, and a wide variety of other organizations to identify community goals, issues, and needs. Urban Planners then develop an executable plan to achieve those goals, fix those issues and meet those needs.
