Geographic Information Science, Minor

This is the first version of the 2024–25 General Catalog. Please check back regularly for changes. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

Geographic information systems (GIS), and the tools and digital spatial data that they contain, help inform major decisions on how natural resources are managed, how smart cities are built, how communities respond to natural disasters, and how the spread of disease is detected. The minor is designed to provide the knowledge and skills needed to work with geographic information and prepare individuals to work in this growing profession. Geography majors are not eligible for the geographic information science minor.
