Geography as a Minor
Geography is the study of the earth as the human home. UT Tyler undergraduates may choose geography as a minor to fulfill academic and career objectives. The minor familiarizes students in the major concepts of geography and the people, places and cultures as they are found in various regions of the world.
Students also learn about physical processes that frame the planet earth. Up to 2 courses in the sub-field Geographic Information Systems (GIS) may be included in the minor. This sub-field equips students for a wide range of challenging professional careers in social science, urban land use planning as well as employment with city, state, and federal governments.
The minor can support majors in social sciences, education, life sciences, journalism, history and technology.
