Geographic Information Systems
The Geographic Information Systems (GIS) minor introduces students to the concepts and theory of GIS, and helps them to develop the practical skills necessary when using basic GIS software in a variety of applications. Courses include three in using ArcGIS software, in addition to remote sensing, GPS, and geodatabases. Each course in the minor is a combination of both lecture and lab. In the lectures, conceptual elements are explained. Labs provide students with first-hand experience in critical thinking, data input and management, methods of analyses, and final map and report presentations.
