Emphases in the Geography minor program are:
- gaining an understanding of the geographic perspective, and
- acquiring skills in the use of spatial analysis tools (such as geographic information systems (GIS), computer mapping, and other computer applications).
A Geography minor may be taken in conjunction with a variety of majors such as social science and secondary education. Minor requirements are 18 credits selected in consultation with a geography adviser in the Department of Geosciences. Students preparing for teaching geography in the secondary schools should follow the School of Education curricula.
