The minor in Human Geography offers students a general introduction to the relationship between nature, society, and our role within it. Students will be able to develop specific interests they may have outside of their home disciplines.


To complete the Human Geography minor, students must have no fewer than 30 credits and no more than 42 under the following guidelines.

Students must first complete 15 lower-level credits to build a knowledge-base in human geography.

In third and fourth-year, students will need to take 18 credits in upper-level geography and geographical sciences courses.

These 18 credits must consist of six credits from each of the three concentrations:

  • Cultures and Places
  • Cities and Globalization
  • Nature and Society
