Students walking on campus


The Geography program at Mt. Hood Community College teaches you about the Earth’s climate and soil, the forms and features of the land, and how people relate to it all. You also learn how to study, make sense of, and create maps. Because space and place affect many topics (such as health, climate, plants, and animals), geography can relate to many other college majors.
