The minor in Geography examines the critical interactions among space, place, people and the built and natural environment to interpret the spatial and temporal distribution of features and processes, applying spatial techniques and information technologies such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing.

Students must satisfactorily complete the total credits required for the minor. Minors and interdisciplinary minors require 12 or more upper-division (300- to 400-level) credits.

Additional coursework may be required due to prerequisites.
