Geography is the study of people, nature and society in a spatial perspective. "Why is it like this exactly here?" is a basic question within the discipline. To map and understand spatial variations is an important academic focus. Another important focus is the interaction between human beings and their surroundings. Geographers emphasize the understanding of how the surroundings affect human activity, culture and welfare, and how people affect their surroundings. The teaching includes courses both within human geography and physical geography.
