Undergraduate Program

Two undergraduate degrees are offered reflecting Geography’s position between the social and natural sciences.

Geography: This major explores how location and scale affect society and the environment. The program is 32 credit hours. A minor of 12 credit hours is required (not listed on diplomas). Up to 7 credit hours can overlap between the Geography major and the Environmental Studies minor.

Environment & Society: This STEM major explores how humans both affect, and are affected by environmental changes. The program is 41 credit hours, and has a strong interdisciplinary focus. No minor is required.
For the Geography/Environment & Society double major a maximum of 11 credit hours are allowed to overlap.

Bachelor’s to Master’s GIS Pathways Program allow both undergraduate majors to overlap with the Master’s degree in Geographic Information Science (GIS) by sharing or ‘double counting’ up to 12 graduate credit hours.
