Geographic Sciences

A BSc stands for Bachelor of Science, and it is an undergraduate academic degree. Depending on the particular program, students who earn a BSc may choose to enter into a career or continue their education and earn an advanced degree.

In geographic sciences courses and programs, students have the chance to explore the physical aspects of the planet and atmosphere, the effects of human activity, resource use and the technologies used in analyzing these aspects.

Can any other region can match the variety and dimension of Africa? With imitable history, landscape and cultural contributions, hardly any regions offer a study abroad encounter that is more challenging or more satisfying in terms of studying.
