Geography Minor

The geography minor is designed for students who wish to broaden their major
program of study by expanding their knowledge of the physical world.

This minor integrates topics that will deepen and broaden your understanding of environmental, societal, and economic issues and how these disciplines work together to influence decisions that affect the environment and long-range planning. 

Students minoring in geography must complete a minimum of 21 units. Six units will be at the 100 level with the remainder at the 200-400 level. A maximum of 6 units may be taken at the 200 level and all course selections must be made in consultation with a faculty adviser.  A grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher is required in all courses in the minor. View the minor requirements in the Undergraduate Catalog.
