Geography A.S. Area of Emphasis

Geography examines not only the earth, but also its inhabitants. Studying geography will enrich your knowledge base regardless of your area of concentration.

The two most common fields are physical geography and cultural geography. Physical geographers study the physical aspects of a region, including land formations, climates, soils, vegetation, water, plants, and animals. Cultural geography studies the effect of human inhabitants within a given area. Careers in cartography, GIS specialization, climatology, or transportation management are just a few of the options available to geography majors.

What is a TTP?

Tennessee Transfer Pathways are advising tools designed to help community college students plan for transferring to a Tennessee public university to complete their baccalaureate degree. The Tennessee Transfer Pathways also constitute an agreement between community colleges and universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements. A student who completes all the courses listed on a particular Transfer Pathway will earn an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree at Chattanooga State. When the student transfers to a Tennessee public university, the transcript will certify that the pathway has been followed. The student is guaranteed that all the community college courses taken will be accepted at the university and the courses will count toward completion of the particular major. If a community college student transfers to another Tennessee community college, he or she is guaranteed that all courses transfer.
