Effective fall 2021, there will be no admission to the program for both current and prospective students as this program is on administrative hold.

A minor in Geography strengthens a liberal arts education. A geographic perspective provides a complement to majors such as Environmental Studies, History, and Sociology. In this 20-credit minor, students will take a course in both of the major subfields of geography: physical and cultural. Students will also select from regional, systematic, and geographic skills courses.
