Geospatial Science and Technology Minor

Location is a fundamental attribute of all features. Professionals in a wide range of disciplines are utilizing geospatial science and technology to collect, manage and analyze geographic information for a deeper understanding of our world.

In many disciplines, knowledge of geospatial technology has become a presumed prerequisite. The geospatial science and technology minor is a program that combines theory and application to address real-world problems in a variety of disciplines. Course material is tied closely to the geospatial industry.

Minor Requirements (15 credit hours)

Select 6 credit hours from the following lower division courses:

GISC 2011 and GISC 2011L – Geographic Information Science Lecture and Lab
GISC 2012K – Fundamentals of Spatial Analysis
GISC 2201K – Fundamentals of Cartography and Earth Measurement
GISC 2202K – Fundamentals of Data Acquisition and Management
GISC 2203K – Fundamentals of Remote Sensing

Note: GISC 2011 and GISC 2011L cannot be applied to the minor if already applied in Area D of the core curriculum. In this case, students should choose an additional GISC course from those listed in the lower division courses.
