Bachelor of Arts in Geography

A Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in geography consists of 36 credit hours plus two years of college work in one foreign language or the equivalent as determined by the Department of Foreign Languages. Lower division requirements: 1000 or 1020; 1060 and 1070. If Geography 1030 is taken prior to a major declaration, then Geography 1070 and Geography 3510 must be taken to satisfy the core in physical geography. Geography 3510 in this case then also counts toward upper division physical requirements (Group 1).

Courses from the following upper division groups are required:
