Geography Option

Program Structure

The Geography Option is a structured interdisciplinary option with undergraduate courses in Anthropology, Architecture, Biology, Economics, History and Environmental Engineering. It consists of five courses (15 credits), distributed as follows:

  • One mandatory course (3 credits)
  • Three elective courses (9 credits), at least one in each of the two areas offered by the program (Space and Society - Nature and Culture)
  • Research Area (3 credits): One seminar or one guided research project.

Elective courses cannot be mandatory courses or elective courses from the student`s program of study, except for Colombian Geography (HIST 2204B) and General Geography (HIST 2407B). Guided Research must be different from the graduation project, or the research project from other options that the student is enrolled in and must be approved by the Option Committee.
