In the Department of Geography, you can earn one of two Majors: a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science.

In the major programs, you specialize in one discipline in the last two years of the program. The degrees provide solid backgrounds for a variety of professional careers and graduate schools.

Once you have selected a degree program, check out our degree planning page, which provides details on course selection, including appropriate geography courses and co-requisites from other faculties or departments. Each program is accompanied by a degree planning form designed specifically for that program. Fill in the blanks to plan your degree. Undergraduate advising is available to assist you with the process.

Please contact our Undergraduate Advising Team at for assistance.
