Geography Minor

18 hours

Geography is fundamental to understanding our location and relationship to the planet on which we live. Geographic literacy is vital in our increasingly global and connected society on a planet experiencing rapid social, political, technological, and environmental change. Spatial thinking is a required skill for both cadets and civilian students. Geography teaches quantitative, qualitative, analytical, and critical thinking skills through group projects, field trips, labs, and global studies. Geospatial technology is a high growth industry making these skills employable and geography students marketable. This minor is an applied geography minor focused on strategic and functional aspects of geography.
