The geography minor allows undergraduates to explore one or more of the three main areas of geography—human geography, environmental geography, and geotechniques. Studying geography prepares students to pursue a wide variety of careers or enter graduate school.

To minor in Geography, you must complete any five Geography courses (at least 20 credit hours) with a grade of at least C-.  Courses taken Pass/Fail cannot be used for the minor. All minor courses can be used to fulfill Discovery Program requirements.

At the beginning of your final semester at UNH you should complete a Certification of Completion of Minor form. The minor must be approved by your major and minor supervisors. The completed form is then presented to the college dean for approval and, finally, forwarded to the Registrar.

Please direct questions about minoring in Geography to Mary Stampone, Chair.
