Bachelor of Science Degree
College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Department of Geography and Anthropology
The Bachelor of Science degree program in Geographic Information Science (GISc) integrates Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology with applied research domains. The principal objective of the proposed program is to produce high caliber graduates who are well trained in the technology, theory, and usage of GIS, computer science and information systems (CSIS), and basic geography. This knowledge will then be applied to one of three content areas: business systems, environmental systems, or urban systems. These three systems represent the largest and most common areas in which GIS is used in our society. Where GIS provides students with the technological tools, the specific content areas cited above provide the requisite theory and context.
