Supplemental Information for BS with a Major in Geography

The Bachelor of Science with a major in geography requires completion of two of the following course groups, in addition to the courses required for the Bachelor of Arts with a major in geography. The two course groups (four courses in total) can be substituted for the foreign language requirement of the Arts and Sciences Core Curriculum.

Group I - Computer Science

CSCI 1110, Program Development, 4 hours

CSCI 1120, Structured Programming, 4 hours

Group II - Mathematics

Two courses, each at least 3 hours, in addition to the college requirement for meeting the Arts and Sciences Core Curriculum.

Group III - Physical and Natural/Life Science

Two advanced level courses, each at least 3 hours, in physics, chemistry or biology.**

** Subject to approval by the geography undergraduate adviser. Math courses taken to satisfy the Arts and Sciences Core Curriculum cannot be applied to Group II. Group III courses may be from different departments (for example, one in physics and one in chemistry).

Concentrations

Students who wish to concentrate in earth science should select three courses from Group A and two courses from Group B (as listed under the Supplemental Information for BA with a Major in Geography ), and students who wish to concentrate in regional science should select two courses from Group A and three courses from Group B.
