Geography is the study of the relationships between people and their environment, relationships that vary from place to place over the Earth. Geography students assess those factors responsible for the variable and changing character of Earth’s systems, which over time have been transformed into human habitat. Geography integrates physical science, social science, and the humanities. The Department requires that students understand both the physical and human components, and develop the spatial analytical skills to study these systems.
A minimum of 16 credits is required to complete the minor.
