Geography Minor

PROGRAM OVERVIEW The minor in geography is the holistic study of Earth’s surface, including human and physical geographic attributes that characterize space and place. Beside studying the features, factor, processes, and relationships between these elements and how they change through space and time, geography also probes into the study of relationships between natural environments and the societies located in, on, and around them. In an increasingly globalized world where population growth puts increased stress on environments, economies and geopolitics are more international, and cultures intermingle, an understanding of geography is especially important.

REQUIREMENTS FOR MINOR A minor in geography may be combined with an academic major in another discipline. The geography minor at Drake emphasizes cultural geography and draws on courses from the environmental science and policy program. A minimum of 18 credit hours is required for the geography minor.
