Geography

(18 semester hours)

For information, contact the Department of Geography, 216 Shideler Hall (513-529-5010).

This minor provides training in the interpretation of geographic data and geographic (spatial) analytical techniques that should form a strong complement for students with majors in other physical and social sciences. We recommend a minor in geography for students who want to know the world better and want to apply that broader perspective to effective local action in their special areas of expertise.

A minimum 2.00 GPA is required for all courses in the minor. No courses may be taken credit/no-credit. This minor is not available to majors in geography.
