The minor in Geographic Studies is defined by its concern with place. Geographers strive to answer spatial questions regarding the Earth’s surface; to describe and explain the character of regions; to ascertain the ways in which historical and contemporary humans have used and shaped the Earth’s surface; and to understand the interactions of physical, biotic, and human systems within our global environment. The minor is compatible with a variety of environmental majors in the college.
The minor is sponsored by the Department of Human Ecology, Landscape Architecture and Environmental Design Program.
