Geography Minor

Geography Art
The United States Department of Labor classifies geography as a “Bright Outlook” occupation. Geographers with skills in geospatial technologies are in very high demand – with a projected annual growth rate of almost 35%.

Geography involves the study of the “whys of where”. Location is important to geography, but the field is about more than labeling maps. Geography involves understanding spatial patterns, relationships, and processes. The geography minor will develop your geographical lens for understanding the world around you. You will gain an ability to think spatially about culture, politics, economics, history, the environment, and all of the interactions between these topics.
