Geography Program

TAMUCC College of Liberal Arts

A multidisciplinary Geography minor offers undergraduate students in-depth study of Geography, and is designed to complement other undergraduate programs at the University.

The purpose of the Geography minor is to give students an understanding of the breadth of the discipline of geography, the tools of geography, and an appreciation for how physical and human geography impacts issues in politics, economics, and the environment. Students electing a minor in Geography should, prior to completing 6 hours of course work for the program, contact the College of Science and Technology to be assigned an advisor for the minor. The advisor will aid the student in filing a minor plan for certification by the Dean of the College in which the major field of study degree will be awarded.
