“Geographic inquiry focuses on understanding complex local to global interactions of Earth’s physical and human systems.”

Adding a geography minor to your studies allows you to:

“Acquire the skills required to pose and investigate significant spatial and environmental questions and develops the ability to use maps, imagery, and geospatial technologies. Learning geography promotes understanding of past, present, and possible future conditions on Earth and fosters deep appreciation for the value of diverse cultures, natural environments, and nonhuman species.”

“Geographic knowledge is fundamental to reaching our personal and societal goals, and in attaining a higher quality of life.”
