The Geography program (within the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences) offers a BA degree that includes a full range of courses in the fundamentals of geography taught mainly by full­time faculty.

These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their major advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.

Undergraduate students may count up to 6 credit hours of independent study (any combination of GEOG 3840, 4840, 4880/GEOL 3840, 4840, 4880/ENVS 3840, 4840, 4880) towards elective credit in the major as approved by the undergraduate coordinator.
