The minor is not required of majors in the College of Arts & Sciences. However many students undertake a minor anyway, as it gives them a secondary concentration and appears on their transcropts. The Department offers a minor in Geography & Environmental Studies which complements major degrees in many fields. Minor requirements include the two introductory courses: G&ES 104 (World Geography) and G&ES 150 (Introduction to Environmental Studies), four courses in G&ES (or approve others) totaling 18 credit hours. Minor courses must be taken with at least three different faculty members.
Declaring a minor is a matter of visiting the office (BBH 346), filling out a major/minor form, or using one of the forms below.
