Minor in Geographic Information Science
Find information for transfer students.
Geographic information science (GIS) minors develop an in-depth understanding of spatial analysis and the art of digital map-making that complements discipline-specific knowledge. GIS has become a key approach to an increasingly large number of endeavors, from land-use planning and environmental management to epidemiology through law enforcement. It relies on geospatial technologies and research that include internet mapping, in-vehicle navigation systems, digital cartography, imagery taken by airplanes and satellites, spatial analysis and modeling of social and natural processes, and visualization and data mining of complex information. This minor will improve your marketability and open up opportunities for intellectual and professional development.
