Geographic laws affect the destiny of a nation more than any other factor.  As countries become more dependent on each other, it becomes more important to understand how and where people live, and why a few strong nations have come to dominate the affairs of the world.


As a geography major at Vincennes University, you will come to understand how geographic facts and principles have worldwide application and significance.  You will learn why one country is dependent on another for food, why the U.S. is dependent on the Middle East for energy, and why a country like Ireland has palm trees and beaches.
