GIS/Geospatial Technologies Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Programs (A-Z)

Geographic Information Science (GIS) and Geospatial Technologies are integral to Environmental Science and many other fields. Various scientific analyses depend heavily on GIS to analyze spatial interrelationships of processes and variables in order to gain better understanding of these processes and to support decision making. This minor provides hand-on training and prepares individuals for careers in technical fields such as environmental science, biology, natural resource management, geology/soil science, oceanography, limnology, oil and gas, hydrology and flood management, meteorology, climatology, geography, urban planning, hazardous materials response, and environmental health. Students will gain knowledge and skills in GIS and related geospatial technologies, including tools of Global Positioning Systems (single and differential), remote sensing (incorporating aerial photography, satellite data, and small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS)) and their analytics.

Required courses in the minor (18 hours)
