Geography Minor

The Minor in Geography offers students a broad-based background in the discipline and an opportunity to specialize in a particular area of interest through upper division electives. A geography minor is a useful complement to a number of majors, including Natural Resources Planning & Interpretation, Geology, History, Anthropology, Economics, Religious Studies, Government & Politics, and International Studies. It is also excellent preparation for careers in planning, teaching, natural resource management, government, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

Requirements for the Minor

Plus, three upper division electives via written contract with the department chair.

The Geography Minor Contract Form shows the specific department requirements and is turned in to the Registrar to verify completion of the major.
