Becoming a Major in Geography or Urban Studies
To declare a major in Geography, you must visit the undergraduate advisor.
Although not strictly required, continuing majors should check with the undergraduate advisor periodically to share information on courses, discuss difficulties, obtain approvals, and to keep track of career, internship, study abroad, and honors possibilities.
Note: Until August 31, 2003, the Urban Studies major was managed by the Urban Issues Program. The Department of Geography and the Environment gratefully acknowledges continued support from the LBJ School of Public Affairs.
