Minor in Geography

To earn a minor in geography in conjunction with a Bachelor of Arts or Science degree in another discipline, students must complete a minimum of 18 credits, with a “C” or higher. No course taken on a P/F basis shall count toward the minor.

Required courses include:

  • GES 102 – Human Geography [3]
  • GES 110 – Physical Geography [3]

…plus any four upper division courses in geography and environmental systems, excepting internships or independent study. Summer and winter session courses of less than three credits will not count toward the total requirements.

The department offers a number of special topics courses that may also qualify for minor credit, and students are encouraged to discuss their course selection with a department advisor.

Students interested in a minor should consult a department faculty member for assistance in choosing appropriate courses.
