  • Geography

    Credits: 15, completed with minimum grades of C

    Geography is the science of place, space, and environment. It is an interdisciplinary field investigating topics of environmental and social significance through data collection, use of computer-based tools and field studies. A minor in geography complements majors in agricultural sciences, business, environmental sciences, geology, health sciences, international studies, journalism, social sciences, and travel and tourism.

    Students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts in geology with a specialization in environmental geosciences are not eligible for this minor.

    No more than six transfer credits may count toward the minor. Students must complete a minimum of six credits of coursework exclusive to the minor that cannot count toward the major(s) or other minors.
