Geography studies places and human activities across the earth. Geographers often ask "where?" and "why?" The field focuses on the distribution and changes in the location of ethnicities, resources, transportation, land use, industries, climate, physical land formations, etc. Many geography courses have both physical environment and human/cultural components.
