About the Program

The objective of this minor is to acquaint the student with the differences and similarities that exist from place to place on Earth’s surface in both natural and cultural environments. It is designed to accommodate a range of interests from the very general to specific subject matter within geography. Education majors who would be involved with a social science curriculum would also find this minor beneficial.
