Geographic Information Systems Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs A-Z

A minor in geographic information systems (GIS) is designed to give students a broad understanding of the geographic concepts that underpin GIS and related geospatial technologies, as well as develop practical skills in utilizing these technologies to address applications in a wide range of disciplines and domain areas. The structure of this minor goes beyond ‘software knowledge’ and introduces students to fundamental theories related to spatial thinking and geographic information, and provides training in the tools and techniques required to utilize GIS and geospatial technologies in professional settings. In addition, students will explore the social and cultural impacts of the increasing use of these technologies in both the public and private sectors. Students must earn a grade of ‘C’ or better in all 18-21 credit hours required by the GIS minor.
