Geography Adjunct Major

Students must also complete the Undergraduate Registration Requirement and the degree requirements of their home school.

 All adjunct majors require completion of a stand-alone major also. Students majoring in geography also must complete a major in a related social or natural science field. Program courses for the geography adjunct major may not be double-counted toward other majors.

Honors in Geography

Geography majors do not need to formally apply to be considered for honors. All majors are required to take 1 unit of independent study (GEOG 399-0 Independent Study). Those with strong academic records and an interest in pursuing honors must take an additional unit of GEOG 399-0 to more fully develop a senior project. This second GEOG 399-0 may count toward the major. Students whose projects and grades meet program criteria are recommended to the college for graduation with honors. For more information consult the program director and see Honors in the Major.
