Required Minor

All Geography majors must successfully complete the requirements for one (or more) of any of the minors offered by the university (18-24 hours*) or for a second major. Since geography is a discipline that has subfields in virtually every other discipline, this requirement is intended to help prepare our majors to have additional knowledge in a secondary body of knowledge.
