The Minor in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) prepares students for current modern trends in geospatial technology, computerized mapping, digital image processing and spatial analysis. The GIS Minor requires one course in Computer Science (CSCI 1016), three courses in GIS, GPS and Remote Sensing and six hours of upper division coursework in selected classes either in geosciences, computer science or business.
The GIS Minor incorporates dynamic changes in current advances in spatial sciences and technology. The students that complete GIS Minor enhance significantly their employment opportunities especially in environmental consultation agencies, mapping technology industry and surveying. The GIS Minor pertains to any natural resource fields such as Geology and Biology as well as social studies and business. A GIS Minor combined with a computer science major is currently one of the most employable fields in geospatial analysis.
