Experiences That Set You Apart

Are you interested in the environment in which you live – locations, natural features, cultural influences, and how they all come together? Then a minor in geography may be right for you. This program blends the natural and social sciences in understanding how people relate to the world around them. If you have an interest in business, economics, history, political science, humanistic studies, women’s studies, or earth science, geography can help you better understand and connect all of these fields.

Meet Laurel Phoenix

“Remember there is a big world out there with interesting people and places you’d like to know. But most of all, travel! It’s a growth experience at different levels—you learn rst about yourself when challenged by a new environment, and second, your stereotypes about other peoples are seriously challenged. What you learn about another geography is a lifetime experience. You’ll be a better student because you return with broader perspectives.” -Laurel Phoenix & Marcelo Cruz, Associate Professors Urban and Regional Studies
