Geography Minor

University Park, College of Earth and Mineral Sciences (GEOG)

The Geography minor can complement most majors in the social sciences, physical sciences, biological sciences, and technical disciplines. The geography minor is flexible so that students can tailor their course choices to accommodate individual interests. A broadly based approach to selecting minor courses can be appropriate for students whose majors are highly specialized or narrowly focused. Alternatively, students may choose to fulfill geography minor requirements with a particular content emphasis, such as an interest in environmental issues or urban and regional planning. Looking through course choices and talking with geography staff can make earning the geography minor an important enhancement to one's academic program.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
