NSU Geography, B.A.: The geography major is a well-rounded, flexible, liberal arts degree and is good preparation for graduate work in geography or related disciplines. Students may select courses within the geography major to design a more applied program and career-oriented courses; such an applied focus prepares students for careers in both the public and private sector of the economy. Geographers work in such areas as environmental analysis and management, transportation, teaching, urban and regional planning, economic development, marketing research, resource management, retail site selection, historic preservation, and geospatial technology.
Major guidelines / regulations: Specifically, the Geography (GEOG) major requires two core courses, three hours in human geography, three hours in physical geography, three hours in regional geography, six hours in geographic techniques, and an additional 15 hours in geography electives (18 hours of the geography major may be completed at TCC). The Geography major requires the completion of an 18-hour minor in another discipline of your choice.
What it takes to complete a bachelor’s degree from NSU. If you don’t complete your AA at TCC, you will need to meet NSU’s specific general education requirements. You must have at least 124 hours completed to earn a bachelor’s degree. Of those hours, 60 must be from a university (4 year school), 40 must be junior and senior (3000/4000) level, and half of the hours in your major must be from NSU. You must also be both English and computer proficient. This means that you must pass English Composition I & II with a “C” or better and demonstrate computer proficiency (high school or college course work / test). Therefore, when you transfer to NSU, you will likely need to complete around 64 more hours in order to earn your bachelor’s degree.
