Geography is not a degree program, but Kilgore College offers general education requirements necessary to transfer to a university offering bachelor programs in geography.
The Department of Humanities and Social/Behavioral Sciences at Kilgore College serves the students of the college by providing courses that meet the Core Curriculum requirements for successful transfer and completion of a bachelors degree at four-year colleges and universities. World Geography (GEOG 1303) is offered during both the Fall and Spring semesters each year.
At least one Social Science course is required for all transfer students, and a World Geography course is an excellent option for many majors. Understanding the physical, economic, and political characteristics of the various regions of the world can be helpful for success in almost any career. Most Elementary Education majors find that the course meets a requirement for certification when they transfer. Liberal Arts majors have found that they are increasingly being recruited by businesses that are seeking well-educated graduates who can think analytically and communicate in both written and oral forms. World Geography is a course that provides a background that is not matched by other elective courses.
The Kilgore College faculty is a diverse group of experienced teachers who provide a variety of teaching styles from which students may choose. Their expertise is shown in the number of students who enroll in courses because of degree requirements but make the decision to continue as Liberal Arts majors. The study of geography opens a door of understanding for the world in which we live and work. Positive experiences in Kilgore College classrooms have resulted in students of all majors becoming lifelong students of geography.
