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 coursework, with at least 15 upper-division (300/400 level) credits, 5 of which must be at the 400-level. Independent learning and internship credits (GEOG 494, 496, 497, 499) may NOT be counted as part of these 30 credits. No classes outside of GEOG curriculum may be substituted for these requirements.
  • A minimum 2.0 grade is required for each course counting toward the minor.
  • No more than 5 credits can be at the 100 level.
  • For transfer students: At least 15 upper-division (300-400 level) credits applied toward the minor must be taken in the UW Department of Geography.
