Bachelor of Arts in Geography (B.A.)
This degree offers students a broad liberal arts education touching on all aspects of Geography. As part of this degree students need to meet the KU Core Requirements and/or requirements set by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. College requirements are the same as those for the Bachelor of General Studies degree, and require a minimum of 33 credit hours in Geography. Course work includes 18 hours of fundamentals courses and 15 additional hours selected from four topical groups: physical, human, techniques and regional. Students taking the B.A. degrees should note that most Geography graduate programs require a statistics course, e.g., GEOG 316, and we highly recommend a basic course in GIS, e.g., GEOG 358.
The Department Geography & Atmospheric Science is within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. CLAS Interest Code and Major Declaration forms are available from College Student Academic Services, 109 Strong Hall. Students are strongly encouraged to declare an Geography or Atmospheric Science major as soon as possible.
