Geographers are interested in the interrelationships between humans and their environment, including the physical environment, the built environment, and socially-constructed spaces. Geography’s perspective is inherently spatial, but may address issues from local to global scales. The Honors Tutorial program in Geography offers students an opportunity to explore the breadth of this dynamic field, while at the same time, gain proficiency in a selected subfield.
Applicants are selected by the program director of studies in consultation with the dean of the Honors Tutorial College. In addition to a superior academic record (minimum 3.5 GPA, a minimum score of 30 on the ACT or 1300 on the SAT, and a class rank in the top 10%), committee members look for students who are highly motivated and exhibit the potential to conduct independent research. An essay and a personal interview with the director of studies are required for entry as a freshman. Letters of recommendation are also required. Although this is a four-year program, consideration will be given to applications of first-semester Ohio University freshmen.
Change of Program Policy
The program will consider applications from exceptionally promising first-year students already enrolled at Ohio University. These students must meet the same entrance requirements as entering freshmen.
External Transfer Admission
The program will consider transfer applications from exceptionally promising first-year students at another institution. These students must meet the same entrance requirements as entering first-year students.
Opportunities Upon Graduation
The tutorial program in geography prepares talented and highly motivated students for graduate study or for employment in the public or private sector.
