Geography

Description of Minor

A minor in geography (emphasizing cultural geography) may be combined with an academic major in another discipline. Geography is the holistic study of the earth’s surface features, attributes, processes and relationships among various spatial factors, and how they change over space and time. An understanding of geography is essential in an increasingly globalizing world where environments are more strained, economies are more global and cultures are more dynamic and intermingled.

Requirements for Minor

Minimum of 18 credit hours in geography. All geography minors complete a 9-credit-hour core of introductory courses — SCSG 2 and SCSG 3 — and ENSP 65. In addition, the geography minor requires at least three 3-credit upper-division courses in geography.
