Students study the physical features of the earth and how human activity affects those features. The Geography minor helps students gain a foundational understanding of the earth’s landscape and see the big-picture effects of how time has impacted our world.
Geography minors take classes on geology, geomorphology, political geography, and history. Other courses focus on the geography of specific regions, including Latin America, Asia, and Africa. A minor in Geography would pair well with History, PPE, and Environmental Science majors.

History, Global & Political Science Department
Covering everything from philosophy and economics to history and international studies, the History, Global & Political Studies department helps students challenge assumptions, make connections, and apply historical knowledge to contemporary current issues.
The wide variety of disciplines and majors represented in the department are grounded in research, analysis, critical thinking, and truth seeking. Through these values—as well as through practical learning in discussions, case studies, lectures, and simulations—students develop fresh insights and perspectives that join textbook knowledge with global realities and a Christian worldview.
Not only are the History, Global & Political Science professors serious about what they teach, they’re serious about incorporating their own personalities in the classroom and encouraging their students to do the same. The faculty create a family atmosphere—hosting movie nights, meals, and badminton tournaments while prompting their students to join in career development opportunities like research groups, the American Studies Program, and Taylor’s chapter of the American Enterprise Institute Council.
