A minor is an optional component of a student’s degree that will be reflected on the student’s transcript. Minors are an excellent way for students to customize their learning experience and craft a degree program that is uniquely theirs. Students can even earn multiple minors to supplement a bachelor's degree. For example, students pursuing a degree in interpersonal communication might find that a minor in sociology is an excellent pairing, while a student pursuing a degree in public administration might add a minor in sustainability issues to help create a cleaner, greener future. And in some cases, employers offer bonuses or higher salaries to employees who have a foreign language minor.

Geography, the study of the earth, is a discipline that spans across the physical sciences and social sciences. An understanding of the uniqueness and complexity of places, global interconnections and human-environment interactions provides a framework to discuss many contemporary problems. Geography courses help students develop analytical skills, research skills, spatial thinking skills and a global perspective. The geography minor complements the interests and accommodates the needs of students from a variety of majors. It pairs well with majors in the humanities, social sciences, business studies and physical sciences.
