Geographic Information Science

The GIS Concentration incorporates dynamic changes in current advances in spatial sciences and technology. The students that complete GIS concentration enhance significantly their employment opportunities especially in environmental consultation agencies, mapping technology industry and surveying. The GIS concentration pertains to all natural resource fields such as Geology and Biology as well as social studies and business. Students in this concentration develop skills in spatial analysis, environmental modeling, and computer programming. GIS is currently one of the most employable fields in the geosciences.
