Why Study Geospatial Science?

The Minor in Geospatial Science is a flexible undergraduate minor that allows students to draw from a broad spectrum of backgrounds to acquire the necessary training in geospatial analysis to complement their area of study. Geospatial analysis 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. Students will receive training in the use of Geographical Information Systems and may choose from several electives to broaden their experience in geospatial analysis.

AREAS OF STUDY:
  • Geospatial Analysis
  • Geographical Information Systems
  • Remote Sensing
  • Maps & Mapping

SAMPLE COURSES:

  • Geospatial Narratives
  • GIS Design and Applications
  • GIS and Cartography
  • Landscape Ecology Laboratory

ADMISSION INFO:

At least 12 credits applied to the minor may not be applied to any major or other minor within the Sustainability Studies Program or the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences.

After Graduation

Your college decision isn't really about the next four years. We get it. It’s about what doors are opened by your degree and whether those opportunities are what you had envisioned for yourself. Nearly 95% of SBU grads go to professional or graduate school. Here's a snapshot of what life after graduation looks like for some of them.

CAREER OPTIONS:

  • GIS Intern
  • Natural Resource Specialist
  • Cataloger
  • GIS Technician

RECENT EMPLOYERS:

  • Starry 
  • Virginia Tech
  • BAE Systems
  • Orbital Insight
