Geography is a dual core subject as described by many, as it can be divided into Physical Geography and Human Geography. Physical geography is always about the physical aspects of the planet Earth, including its landscape, seasons, climate, air, soil, etc, while Human geography is about the way those physical aspects are connected to people on the surface of the planet Earth, i.e. the study of distribution networks of people, as well as facilities and cultures on different parts of the Earth. Yet, in the master level study the subject matters are becoming very complex, usually a mix of the two, or a mix with subjects outside geography.
