- About Plattsburgh
Geographers obtain their basic data from field investigation, in environments that range from wilderness area to cities.
As scientists, geographers are naturally curious about how the world is arranged. They ask lots of questions about why things are located the way they are and then they try to answer those questions.
Geographers see the world as the human habitat, one that we have transformed and that has transformed us. If these things sound intriguing to you, the geography program at Plattsburgh State may be for you. (Source: AAG)
Several upper level courses involve visiting sites in the Adirondack Mountains and Champlain Valley, and the small size of these courses allows for a great deal of individual attention. Learn more about field work opportunities.
The program offers use of several computer applications in geography and a completely dedicated GIS lab with 18 work stations, various printers, plotters, digitizers, and scanners. Learn more about the use of computers in geography.
