Geography

Programs

Our Augustana Faculty currently offers a minor in geography. Students must also major in another subject area (eg. biology, physical education, history, etc.). The minor in geography is designed to expose students to the breadth of geographical study.

Augustana offers a variety of geography courses, which focus on environmental issues, earth landforms, climate and weather, natural resources, parks and wilderness, and the geography of human activities and culture.


Requirements for the minor

  1. GEO 120 (normally taken in the first year)

  2. 5 other GEO courses (4 of these must be at 200 level or above).
