Geography Minor

Students planning to minor in geography should consult a geography undergraduate advisor, Dr. Paul Hudak or Dr. Matthew Fry. A minor requires 18 hours and usually includes: GEOG 1200 or 2170, GEOG 1710 and 12 advanced hours.

  • Education Students - Elementary and secondary education students interested in becoming geography teachers should consult with the College of Education. Importantly, geography courses may be counted toward the course requirements both in education and the geography minor.

Geology Minor

A minor in geology requires 18-19 hours in geology and earth science, usually including GEOL 1610, GEOG 2180, GEOL 3000 and GEOL 3020. Two additional courses must be selected from: GEOG 4350, GEOG 4750, GEOL 4630, GEOL 4710 and GEOL 4850. Geography majors may minor in geology, but none of the courses taken to satisfy the minor can also be applied to the major.
