Geography focuses on the integrated study of our increasingly connected world, shaped by the interactions between cultural and biophysical forces. The major synthesizes approaches widely used in the humanities, social, biophysical, and digital information sciences. Geography is uniquely poised to investigate combinations of social, political, economic, and ecological processes - especially the role of space, place, and geographic networks in shaping these processes and interactions. Geography attempts to interpret not just these phenomena, but also, how they are perceived and what meanings they hold. Such an integrative perspective on global, regional, and local change provides students with a singular understanding of today's complex world. Depending on their specific interests, geographers employ one or more research techniques, including field observation, legal and archival analysis, interviewing, textual analysis, ethnography, mapping, spatial statistics, and computer and econometric modeling. Many geographers are interested in the intersections of science, technology, and information, such as the application and evaluation of geographic information science on decision-making. All geography undergraduates are trained to be interdisciplinary to be better prepared to address some of the world’s most pressing problems including climate change, inequity, population growth, natural resource use and perception, and economic challenges. Students earning a degree in geography are well-prepared to pursue a wide range of career opportunities due to a strong foundation of interdisciplinary education and training. Students in geography engage in course work in the three primary subfields of the discipline: cultural patterns, environmental processes and global change, and geographic information and mapping sciences. Students pursuing the BS degree may also pursue the Geographic Information Sciences track emphasizing spatial and quantitative analysis skills. Geographers have a broad range of career opportunities. Federal, regional, and local governmental agencies seek geographers for city and regional planning, natural resource management, law enforcement, and transportation positions. Private industry consulting, environmental and marketing firms, the non-profit sector, and local, national, and transnational non-governmental organizations seek geographic skills including geographic information sciences and spatial analytical techniques. Many Geography undergraduate majors obtain careers in education and many go on to graduate school. The BS degree offers a challenging and solid foundation in the theory and practice of geography, with the flexibility needed to specialize in particular areas of student interest. Geography undergraduates are encouraged to tailor their individual programs to meet their needs and goals.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Admission Requirements
For information about University of Minnesota admission requirements, visit the Office of Admissions website.
General Requirements
All students in baccalaureate degree programs are required to complete general University and college requirements including writing and liberal education courses. For more information about University-wide requirements, see the liberal education requirements. Required courses for the major, minor or certificate in which a student receives a D grade (with or without plus or minus) do not count toward the major, minor or certificate (including transfer courses).
Program Requirements
Special Policies on Counting Courses: 1. Some GEOG 5xxx-level courses are graduate-level courses and will require departmental consent. 2. Courses counting toward the electives requirements must be worth three or four credits each. In some circumstances, students may substitute 2 two-credit courses for one of the electives course requirements. 3. Any given course can only be used to satisfy one requirement for the major. See major adviser for final approval of individual program. A note about the senior project: students who double-major and choose to complete the senior project in their other major are still responsible for taking a minimum of 44 total credits within the major. At least 14 upper division credits in the major must be taken at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities campus. At least one upper-division (3xxx-level or above) course in the major must be writing intensive. Students may earn up to one undergraduate degree in the geography program: a BA or a BS or a minor in geography. Students may pursue additional degrees in the department's public health, urban studies and/or GIS programs alongside their geography degree. All incoming CLA freshmen must complete the First Year Experience course sequence.
Breadth Requirement
Breadth courses expose students to geography sub-fields. Students may count ONLY one 1xxx course toward the breadth requirement.
