Minor in Geography

To declare the minor in geography, please do so with your major department. You are always welcome to reach out to the Geography Advising Office for help selecting classes for registration and more! The requirements for the geography minor are as follows:

  • 30 credits in geography, including 15 upper-division geography credits with at least 5 credits at the 400-level. No more than 5 credits applied to the minor may be from 100-level classes. Independent learning and internship credits (GEOG 494, GEOG 496, GEOG 497, GEOG 499) may not be counted as part of the 30 credits.
  • A minimum 2.0 grade for each course counted toward the minor.
  • At least 15 credits of upper-division geography courses must be taken through the UW.
