The Geography Minor familiarizes students with both the global map and the spatial distributions of people and things, such as capital, technology, and disease across the globe. Because Geography combines spatial analysis with concepts from a number of other disciplines, a geography minor is an excellent complement to a range of majors, including history, economics, sociology, political science, communications and business administration. Geography is an excellent background for students who wish to develop careers in teaching, development, policy, or other service professions.
The Geography Minor requires students to take 15 credits of Geography courses. At least six of the 15 credits must be at the 300-level or above, and nine credits must be completed at Eastern. At least nine credits must be unique to the Geography minor and not shared with other majors or minors.
Students may choose among the following courses:
Introduction to Geography
Geography of Canada
Regions of the World
Historical Geography of the United States
Gender, Justice, Environment
Geography of Food
Geographies of Tourism
Global Geopolitical Divisions
