0349MIN17 - Geographic Information Science Minor

Program description

Students completing the interdisciplinary undergraduate minor develop knowledge and skills in geographic information science (GISc). GISc enhances students' marketability in the workplace and provides many opportunities for intellectual and professional development. GISc examines geospatial technologies and their underlying principles, applications, and societal dimensions. These technologies include mapping, in-vehicle navigation systems, imagery taken from airplanes and satellites, analysis and modeling of social and natural processes, and visualization and data mining of complex information. Research using geospatial technologies addresses a diverse array of challenges in areas including water resources, environmental hazards, epidemiology, agriculture, housing, transportation, and more.
