University Studies - BS, Geographic Information Science and Technology Concentration

The discipline of Geography examines and describes the human environment: Earth. Understanding Earth requires a consideration of both natural and social processes, hence Geography is by nature interdisciplinary. Human-Environment interactions are of particular interest in Geography. The area of concentration in Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIST) offers students a broad perspective of Earth as a human habitat, while permitting them to complete two supporting minors in other disciplines. The area of concentration is flexible in that numerous courses are included to permit students to build a course of study that is tailored to their interests. Ideally, the two minors would be in related fields to build depth and breadth around themes that are of most interest to the student.
