Minor in Geographic Information Science and Technology

|View/Print PDF

The Geographic Information Science and Technology minor provides students with cutting-edge technical knowledge and skills using state-of-the-al1 information technology, such as geographic information science (GIS), satellite imagery analysis, and global positioning systems (GPS), which are in high demand in business, government, and research platforms. Upon completion of the minor, students are well positioned to enter the workforce or to pursue advanced degrees in geography or other relevant fields with spatial analysis skills and geographic data processing capabilities.

Courses in this minor that are being counted towards a student's major (or other minor) do fulfill the class requirement for the Geographic Information Science and Technology minor, but do not count towards the total required credit hours of the minor, LEP courses can be used towards both the course and credit hour requirements of this minor.
