Geography, Minor

This is the first version of the 2024–25 General Catalog. Please check back regularly for changes. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

The undergraduate minor in geography requires a minimum of 15 s.h. in geographical and sustainability sciences courses (prefix GEOG), including 12 s.h. in University of Iowa courses numbered 3000 or above. Students must maintain a grade-point average of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Coursework in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.

Students are encouraged to concentrate their coursework in tracks—environmental studies, geographic information science, or health and society (see the BA in geography or the BS in geography). For assistance in selecting courses, students may consult with the department's academic advisor.
