Two core courses vital to the liberal arts student are offered:
PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY (GEOG 001)
- Physical Geography - Environmental Awareness
- World Regional Geography - Global Awareness
Class Code: 42466, Mon/Wed, 11:00a.m.-12:15p.m., Room 421, Instructor: Givental

Physical geography studies the processes at work in the physical environment in order to understand the earth as the home of people. Physical geography shows how everything connects to everything else. It pulls together several natural sciences.
- Geology - Landscapes, earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, floods, etc.
- Meteorology - How the weather machine works
- Climatology - Why global climate regions differ, their opportunities and limitations
- Ecology - Environmental issues, global warming, desertification, rain forests, etc.
Physical geography is a science class which many students find difficult. However, we offer a lot of help in the form of Web Learning Modules, computer tutorials, study guides, visual materials, and Web exploration.
PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY LAB (GEOG 001L)
Class Code: 42496, Monday, 01:30p.m.-04:15p.m., Room 323, Instructor: Givental
Class Code: 42128, Tuesday, 01:30p.m.-04:15p.m., Room 323, Instructors: Staff
Physical geography is a prerequisite or corequisite to the physical geography lab. It meets the lab requirements for transfer to a four-year college. This is a one unit course for 3 hours of lab work each week. Lab classes assigned to the computer lab, Room 323, use Internet resources and geographic information systems (GIS). GIS is a computer-based mapping tool and is one of the ten fastest growing job opportunities for students.
