Sample Four-Year Plan

Urban Track

This sample shows just one possible pathway to earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Geography in four years. Students may opt for a Bachelor of Science instead, but the requirements for that pathway are not reflected in this plan. This plan does not replace the advice of your department advisor, and you are cautioned to meet regularly with your advisor to create a personalized plan that matches your particular circumstances rather than following this verbatim. To clarify any degree requirements, please contact your L&S Undergraduate Advisor.

The sample below assumes no high school Foreign Language was taken and that the student placed into college-level Math and English. In addition, this sample reflects the degree requirements for students who began their college education in Fall of 2013 or later. If you started college coursework prior to Fall of 2013, your degree requirements may be different.
