What's Physical Geology & Cultural Geography?

What's the relationship between physical geology and cultural geography? Similarities? Differences? Robert Thorson Metaphor: “If physical geography is the house in which regional culture makes it home, then geology is its foundation, plumbing, and wiring.”

If you minored (4-year degree program) in Cultural Geography, what's the value occupationally?

According to this prospectus "Cultural geography careers include geography education at many levels, analyst, consultant and planner". It guess it all depends on what the demand for such roles is in any given country.

Physical geology has high paying career potential in the oil and gas industries, which have been encouraged recently by the current presidential administration and Republican controlled Congress.

Good move Fathom, and methinks that you should have no problems getting the necessary letters of good reference. So good luck.

If your proposed research may entail how remote sensed (EROS) physical and cultural geography may be affected by global warming, it might be best not to mention global warming, rather describe it using other terms, as global warming has been adversely politicised by the current Trump administration, which in turn may affect internship, scholarship, and grant eligibility.
