LSC-Tomball Geography Department

The Geography Department offers fully transferable lower division courses which fulfill certain Associate Degree requirements and also satisfy basic Certificate of Competency requirements.  The Principles of Geography course provides a survey of the processes of both physical and human geography.  World Geography offers students a survey of human activity within the context of its regional setting, with a focus on economic development and the cultural, physical, and political dynamics at work within each region.  Our Geography program discusses what geography is, what geographers do, how geography facilitates thinking about, and observing the Earth and the Human Landscape in spatial terms.  Experienced, qualified faculty provide instruction in small traditional face to face classes and online classes.
