Minor in Geographic Information Science

The minor in Geographic Information Science requires 23 semester credit hours. The Geographic Information Science minor is designed for students seeking to enhance their preparation for careers or graduate work utilizing geographic information science and geospatial techniques. Students majoring in Geographic Information Science may not minor in this program. Students majoring in other Geography majors who choose the GIS minor will not be able to count GEO 2426 and GEO 3301 for credit in both the major and the minor. Those courses will count toward the minor; therefore, Geography majors must take approved Geography elective courses to satisfy the minimum credit hour requirements for their major.
