Geography faculty advisors will help you plan your coursework and degree program. They can assist you in matching your Geography degree with other coursework, including related Certificate programs.

Before registering for each semester, or as advised by the faculty, the student should meet with his or her advisor to review the in-progress coursework and ensure it meets the requirements. Before registering for your last semester, meet with your advisor to go over all coursework and your DARS report.

Please refer to this guide to Who to See for What (PDF) in the major.
