Geospatial Science Minor


Geospatial Sciences is used in a wide range of disciplines as a research tool, a decision-making tool, data analysis tool, and/or as a planning tool. One of the major components used in these analyses is Geographical Information Systems (GIS) software.

The Minor in Geospatial Sciences is a flexible undergraduate minor that allows students drawn from a broad spectrum of backgrounds to acquire the necessary training in geospatial analysis to complement their area of study.

Students will receive training in the use of Geographical Information System software and may choose from several electives to broaden their experience in geospatial sciences.
