A minor in Geography will serve students who wish to add an interdisciplinary perspective to their plans of study. The minor course of study enhances students’ understanding of how the processes of human and physical systems have arranged and sometimes changed the surface of the Earth, the spatial organization of society and spatial distribution at all scales–local and worldwide–in order to understand the complex connectivity of people and places. Earning a minor in Geography also enables students to make sensible judgments about issues involving relationships between the physical environment and society. Finally, the minor in Geography is designed to foster a greater order to become a better global citizen.
