SUGGESTED SEMESTER SCHEDULE FOR GEOGRAPHY MAJORS, B.S. (PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY EMPHASIS)
   

The following is a list of Geography Major courses arranged by year. This suggested schedule is intended to help students plan their courses in an orderly fashion. Course names that are CAPITALIZED are required core courses. Some courses or course sequences may appear more than once. Geography majors and minors are strongly encouraged to meet with advisors in the Geography program prior to selecting courses as all courses are not offered each year. Given that the study of Geography is inherently interdisciplinary, all Geography students in this major are required to take courses outside of the Geography Curriculum. The 6-8 credits of Natural/Earth Science electives include courses in Geology and Biology and may be selected in any year, provided all prerequisites for those specific courses are met.
