Caroline Nagel, Chair


The Department of Geography offers both the Bachelor of Arts degree and the Bachelor of Science degree, each with a major in geography. The BA degree is in general geography; the BS degree offers concentrations in physical/environmental geography, geographic information sciences, and general geography.


The Department of Geography offers a flexible general geography minor that requires 18 credit hours in geography courses. Students may not apply more than 3 credit hours from the 100 level and not more than 9 credit hours from the 200 level.

Besides the general geography minor, students may instead choose a specialized minor in the following areas: environmental geography, geographic information science, meteorology and climatology, physical geography, and regional geography. Please see a faculty advisor in the Department of Geography for more details on the requirements for specialized minors.
