Geography Minor

Degree Check Sheet:  Geography Minor 2018-2019

Geography aims to understand how physical processes and sociocultural configurations operate at different scales ranging from global to local. Geography is unique in bridging the social sciences and the natural sciences. Exploring specific case studies helps geographers place theory into practice. This minor provides students with an introduction to geography and its method of spatial analyses. The holistic approach of geographers is best suited for majors interested in decision-making to address multidimensional environmental and development issues. Students must complete each course with a grade of “C-” or better.
