The Minor in Geography

The Minor in Geography gives students the opportunity to obtain a geographic or spatial perspective on a variety of issues including urbanization, economic development, globalization, and resource utilization. Students who understand geography are capable of evaluating the complicated relationship between human communities and the natural environment. Three of geography’s major themes are human-environmental interaction, regions of the world, and questions of location. Geographers analyze processes, systems, and behaviors that have spatial expression. Students will learn to apply their knowledge of patterns, distributions, allocations, and circulations towards solving problems in their chosen field of endeavor, be it in the public sector, private sector, or the academey.
