The Geography minors complement any major especially those in other sciences or those looking to become an engineer or a field that works with the earth.
Geography is the science of space, place, and the environment. The geography minor provides an opportunity to craft an individual course of study to complement a wide range of major programs. Geography minors will examine interactions between human and natural systems at local, regional, and global scales. The minor allows for emphasis in human geography, physical geography, spatial analysis, or a combination of these interests.
The Geographic information science (GIS) minor develops an in-depth understanding of spatial analysis and cartographic communication to complement discipline-specific knowledge. GIS is central to an increasingly large number of endeavors, from land-use planning and environmental management to urban design and marketing. This minor will enhance your marketability and open opportunities for intellectual and professional development.
