About the Minor:

Geography is concerned with the spatial dimension of human experience, namely, space and place. As an integrative discipline, it brings together the physical and human dimensions of the world in the study of people, places and environments.  The subject of geography is the Earth's surface and the processes that shape it, as well as relationships between people and environments and connections between people and places.
